    We make 'um. Some friends and I bought the business from Richard Graves in Alberta, CA. He developed the heavy-for-caliber high BC bullets that Wildcat Bullets is known for.

    We also make standard weight and bonded bullets. In fact we have an entire line-up from .17cal to .585 BUT at this time we are only selling the 7mm 200gr ULD RBBTS.

    Right now, it's a one-man show and I'am having a tough time keeping up with demand. Plans are in the works to move to a new building, hire people, and increase production rates dramatically.

    Hopefully the rest of Richard’s line up (and some new ones) will be available by the end of the summer. That's the plan anyway.

    About the BC’s, it was Richards policy not to publish them. We are sticking to this policy until we have a chance to have them independently tested by Bryan Litz . Until then, search this site to find out what people are using to get their drops to match.

    About the website, I haven’t made time to sit down and finish it. But I will get to it.

    Hope this answered your questions. If not, feel free to email me: paul@wildcatbullets.com

    Sounds great to me ! I will be interested in seeing and trying some of the heavy .30 Caliber bullets in my Ultra Mag.

    I'll be trying some 30 Cal 265's in my 300 RUM in a couple months when I get the new barrel on my rifle. That's going to be fun. :)

    What tube are you installing? Are those 265's some you had before the sale?

    A 1:8 twist Benchmark. I discovered they were right in my backyard so I figured I'd give one a try.
    I got them after, but they are old stock made by Richard. Hopefully it won't be too long before Paul can resume their production.
    Unfortunately no. With a 1:10 the 240 SMK is about as big as you can go.

    The 130 grain and 142 grain bullets work well in a 257 Wby with a 1-8 twist barrel and the 130 grain will do a really good job on an elk.

    Yeah, I convinced a buddy of mine to try Ron and he just had a .243 accurized there and had one of Ron's Benchmark tubes installed. Still load testing, but looks good so far. I'm about an hour north of him.

    What length are you going with? Brake or no?
