    Man this comes as a shock to me. I've talked with Jason many times in person and he always seemed like a good dude. Hopefully George can keep the business rolling.

    I don't have any kill info on the 275 sbd2 yet, but I did take them out to 1660m and put 3 consecutive on a 30 " plate at the range, then 2 more on a rock at about 1800m. I don't know how they grouped (couldn't drive out with other people still shooting at the range) but it seemed like they were...

    Awesome! I'll do that next time I do a ladder test.

    That's pretty good I'd say! Just curious, how well does the colored bullets and white paper method work?

    Whether or not I test more probably will depend on how they do at distance, generally I like to dial a load in as best as i can if time permits. Honestly I feel like the load development on these from the 270s was too easy (maybe i got lucky?). I took my load for the 270s, knocked it down 2...

    Interesting, I tried .020" jump and they seemed to like it. I've yet to test at distance but they formed a nice .6 moa group. Maybe I should try more jump.

    "Improved b.c., improved minimum expansion velocity, and improved petal retention at high velocity." Copied from FB, but it gives you an idea on what they worked on. The BC improvement is pretty significant IMO.

    ELD-M vs Berger

    Yeah I imagine it would have, that close there is a lot of energy there.

    ELD-M vs Berger

    Spike elk I assume? Interesting! My brother has shot a few whitetail with them out of a 300 WM and they seem to pass through with just decent sized exit wounds. That said an elk is a lot thicker lol Just curious because he was planning to use these on elk.

    ELD-M vs Berger

    I had this exact thing happen with 300 gr OTMs, shot a mule deer several years ago at about 200 yards and he acted like nothing happened (I knew i didn't miss at that range), my brother followed up and put him down. Upon cleaning we found a hole straight through, no expansion. I've killed...

    Thanks, hopefully the new ones open up a bit more. I'm anxious to get my hands on some.

    Yeah I think that is the most logical explanation, an unfortunate series of events that lead to less than desirable performance. Hopefully your wife can manage to smack another elk with them, so we can get a more conclusive answer. lol And so these are the older rev SBD still? I couldn't...
