Even the bullet on the right is supposed to be higher BC than the 300 SMK. Does it look that way to you? Doesn't to me. Guess we'll know soon.

Litz's calculated G1 bc for the BT on the right of the picture is .777 and G7, .398 with an i sub7of .943. The calculated G1 for the Hybrid on the left is .892, G7 is .456 and i sub7 .822. The unpictured VLD is, G1 .914, G7 .468 and i sub7 .801--very impressive numbers. The pictured Hybrid is very close to the shape of the VLD. All this info from p328 of Bryan's book.

The Hybrid is a real turn on. Sweet lookin' and a good weight.

What's the odds of it shooting well in my factory, great shooting (300 SMKs only)?

Sheese, I thought I was done building.:rolleyes: But I'll consider a build especially for that bullet, if.............

Way to go Eric..........

Figured that I wonder if they will be open to reserve or pre orders, but im sure that will fill up just as quick as they sell.

yea but it will probably take until next june before you will find any. Im sure they will be sold faster than they can make them


Its because of people who buy up thousands at once trying to hoard as many as they can. Kind of like the whole primer scare.
