GS custom bullets...

As some of you know the GS 80 grain HV bullets got 3400 FPS in the the test Tim and C and HTR did... and C has gotten the 105's (BC .505) up to 3000 FPS but those cant be loaded to mag length... well I emailed them about the 80's just to have something else in the bullet pile.. the HV's are a hollow point and according to the dealer will expand down to 1500-1600 FPS... HTR and Tim said they penetrated a whole hog length wise with those bullets.... thats pretty impressive

Either way while I was talking to them they said they would have two new bullets to offer in the .277 category, both will be 99 grains one will be the HV which has the hollow point and will expand on game again down to that 15-1600 FPS range, its BC info is as follows :
Part number: 270099HV246
m/s - fps - BC 884 2900 0.313
m/s - fps - BC 686 2250 0.313
m/s - fps - BC 488 1600 0.312

the second is a SP which is a VLD type match bullet for comps and such here is the info on that:
Part number:270099SP217
m/s - fps - BC 884 2900 0.402
m/s - fps - BC 625 2050 0.379
m/s - fps - BC 366 1200 0.277

Those last two bullets wont be offered for a few more months but I thought you guys would be interested in this info.

Hopefully we can get more companies to build 95-105 grain bullets (like the accubonds and Vmax's or Amax's) for the 6.8

here is the website for the North American importer.. http://www.gsgroup.co.za/NLTCorderhv.html

These were specifically designed for the 6.8, we sent him the dimensions to make sure it would work in the mags last summer after we came back from Texas.

Tim, if I am reading the SF chart correctly, it says that a faster twist than we typically use is required.

Am I reading this correctly?
That's why we made the Xtreme and MK68s 11.25 twist. Companies are just getting started making bullets specifically for the 6.8, we knew these were coming but not sure what else. I had shot the longer 105s in my 13 twist and they did stabilize at 100 yds but I thought the slow twist was hurting the accuracy even though I had a few 3/4" groups.
I am shooting the 105s now out of a 11 twist and getting 1/4 moa vertical spreads at 464yds.
The 99s are much shorter than the 105s so they should be very accurate in the 11-12 twist.

HTR has the Wild River Ranch there around Victoria- $500 a weekend for hog hunts.
The SP is a target bullet, the HV is a solid copper hollow point hunting bullet that acts like a TSX.
H have you sent northern lights an email? I was thinking about it but I didnt want to bother them.....
I did today, he just said it would be a while.
