This is the first time I have ever heard of Alco Bullets.
175 gr 30 cal with a BC of 707
Anyone ever used them in the past?

I have not, but point out that the declared BC must be based on some local air density condition that is not a standard atmosphere.
Would need to find out what those conditions were to convert their BC to a standard BC (not local).
No big deal. They look good to me, and I believe a 12tw would be sufficient for these.

That makes sense as these BC numbers are off the hook!
.284 195 gr declared BC is .932
Tiborasaurus Rex feels like these bullets in a 308 would not be as outclassed by the 300 win mag Sierra Match King bullets.
He has a few videos on the site that is eye opening.
It is not a mono,has a lead core.High BC and high SD

Yes, I have heard of them but have no hands-on experience. There are a few members here that experimented with it. IIRC @Swamplord is one of them. Hopefully, he'll chime in.

ADDED: Some old threads below ...

I've used some of his earlier versions with mixed results. They were accurate, but the BCs are VERY optimistic.

I like how the bullets in that picture don't even have a smooth transition from the jacket to the tip, there's a ledge big enough to trip over! LOL

Yeah. Heard of them. Bullets are long for weight and have cute little pointy tips and are stupid level expensive. TiborasaurusRex on YouTube used to spend a lot of time sucking them off in his videos before the whole world found out they're just over-expensive not very great bullets for fools with more dollars than sense. Anything Rex pimped on his videos should be looked askance at and treated with the highest levels of suspicion. The reason for that is, Rex charges 2 grand to do a review. If you pay 2 grand for a review, you're expecting a certain level of suck-me-off-ness.

If they were any good at all then they'd be owning F-T/R and they're not.

I have and I talked to them about usage for hunting and they advised me not to use them for hunting and use something else.

What's that old saying,"If somethings sounds to good to be true it most likely is".
Since I had not heard of them I had to ask and thanks to all who gave answers.
I'll pass!

Those of you that think TiborasaurusRex is anything but a straight shooter you are full
of --it. He has tested more products then anyone on this site and does not ********.
He is a great guy and has no reason to lie. You can watch live video after video that backs up what he says.
