    I have one box of 20 LRBTs J36 bullets. Manufactured date is January 17, 2002. They have been sitting on my reloading bench for 6 years or more. They need a good home if anybody wants them. Make me an offer and we will talk. Sorry, theyare .308 in 180grain.

    hey all,
    i also have some. i will update exactly what and how many when i get home the 5th or so. i think there is around 5 boxes(20 per) of 180 j36's .308, and maybe 5 boxes of 200 grain j40's .308. i will let them go pretty cheap since i dont even have a 30 cal any longer. i think a usps flat rate box for 10 bucks can go anywhere on earth.
    later,
    tom

    Will these stabilize in a 1-10" twist? I'm interested.

    ok guys,

    i have a total of 54 j 40's, these are 200 grainers .308 cal.
    90 j36's, these are 180 grainers .308 cal.

    all of the above were specified to be stable in a 10 twist, now heres what i experienced in the real world. 180 j36, 30" 4 groove lilja, 30-378 chambering, 3,555 fps 1/4-1/2 moa, very impressive. 200 grain j 40's, same rifle, keyholed at 100 yards, even ran up into the 3,400 fps ballpark, not so very impressive.

    these used to be 2 bucks a bullets for j36 and 1 dollar per j40. i believe, but am not certain that hooker tactical bought lost river out. i would like to get rid of them all, since they will all fit a flat rate box. so, how about 100 bucks shipped price. consider this a buck a piece for the j36's and the j 40's a bonus paper weight, plus the 10 shipping.
    thanks,
    tom

    Whew, I can't afford that, they sound like some high BC bullets though.

    yea, the 180 j36 is .672, and to the best of my ability it was correct. and the 200's were stated to be a touch over.7, but the hit the paper crooked for me, so i never got to test them.
