The BCs on these are ridiculously high! If they are correct those will be some serious bullets for sure! Their 155gr rebated boat tail slug has a higher BC than any other 155gr bullet including Sierra's, Hornady's, and Berger's and is about the same as a Berger 190gr .30cal VLD! Their 230gr Rebated boat tail has a higher BC than the Berger and Sierra 300gr .338 bullets! Their Flat base projectiles are also higher than the competitor's boat tailed bullets of the same weight. Don't see how they're doing that but who knows until they are tested to see if their published BCs are correct.

I wonder about new bullet manificures advertised ballistic coefficents being accurate large numbers sell. It will be interesting if Berger gets some competition. I question the use of the aluminum tip over expanding on game and not penetrating? just some thoughts.

I agree, Berger, Hornady, Sierra, Nosler, etc. have been in this game for awhile and none have come up with a flat based 200gr bullet with a BC of .680! That is higher than any 200-210 bullet out there, including the super efficient 208gr A-MAX and 210gr Berger VLD and Sierra 210gr SMK, and they all have boat tails!

I am always looking for FB 110-120 grain 30 cal bullets for my 30BR. Custom bullet makers are not producing them, because they are not able to get jackets from Sierra or J4

Wonder where these guys are finding 30 cal jackets. Agreed, the BC's are ridiculous. Exaggerated selling point?

Possibly. Until we see a field test I'd take it with a grain of salt. Those are very long, pretty heavily tapered bullets though hahah

The only thing I've ran across is on the bottom left corner of their FB page;

125 = 1.103
168 = 1.344

Well, for comparison sake, the Berger 168 Hybrid is 1.296, so they are substantially longer. I am guessing that is the case across the board.

some almost look like they taper into the tip rather than from it. Odd. That'd create some serious issues in flight but... neat

Those numbers were from the flat base bullets to be specific.
