These are the bullets you want when 0.001" makes the difference between winning or losing the competition! I carefully HAND MAKE each bullet one at a time in my shop at 360 E. Paradise Hills Dr., Henderson, NV, 89002 USA. I know the inside and outside of every bullet PERSONALLY...no robotics nor conveyor belts here! My bullets go through a thorough quality control process. My bullets are:
Passed through Detsch carbide dies
Measured with Mitutoyo digital micrometer accurate to 0.00005"
Measured with Brown/Sharpe digital caliper accurate to 0.0005"
Weighed with electronic scales to 0.01gr
My attention to detail is a big reason behind the extreme quality of my world-class bullets. Of course, using Detsch carbide dies that are dead nuts perfect doesn't hurt either! Most custom bullet makers only make two or three bullet designs, while I offer you over 57 designs in 6mm for practically any barrel twist rate made! From 62gr through 100gr I can put either a single radius 8 tangent ogive on your bullets, or a dual radius 6 tangent with just a small amount of secant 9 at the tip. It's hard to see with your eyes but I have a picture above showing the two profiles. The higher the ogive number the more sleek and slender the bullet. My 8 sizes of VLDs are made 90gr through 115gr and they use a tangent 10 ogive that is then closed tight. New for 2013 are my 6.5mm (.264") bullets. I am offering them in 7 sizes: 110gr, 115gr, 123gr, 130gr, 136gr, 139gr and 142gr. They have a 15 tangent ogive which is closed with a Hoover tipping die, specifically built for my bullets. It is not just one off the shelf. The boat tail is 0.200" by 10 degrees. I can use a flat base if requested. I am the ONLY custom bullet maker that offers 90 plus bullet designs, and tips up my VLDs for you! These things are what sets Precision Ballistics LLC apart from all the rest!
The variation for all bullets within a box does not exceed + .10gr or less for 74gr or lighter bullets, + .20gr or less for 80gr through 115gr bullets. Usually there is only + .10gr variation in a box of any of my bullets. My cores, which are prepared in advance in multiple thousands for each size bullet, are all squirted to a hundredth of a grain, based on the average weights of the J4 jackets I have at the time. Every lot of J4 jackets weigh differently, which makes the weight of my finished bullets a bit light or heavy, but all bullets in a box will weigh the same as the rest of the bullets in that box. Having my cores formed ahead is the ONLY way I can provide a reasonable turn around time when you order.
I make sure that I use the proper size punch to seat the bullets so there is no "bleed by" of lead up the inside of the jacket. Most bullet makers work with 1-3 diameter sizes of seating punches. Because there is always variation in the internal diameter of the jackets, I use 12 different diameter seating punches, in 0.0005" increments, to assure a proper fit! That improves the center of gravity and makes a cleaner spiral flight which helps prevent "fliers". My other 12 punches are for adding flat bases, short boat tail bases, long boat tail bases and squirting cores.
Assorted flat base and boat tail bullets.
Single radius 8 or dual radius 6/9 ogives.
My VLD (very low drag) bullets.
My bullets are Proudly hand-made by ME in America!
I like to shoot my 6mmBR at 100, 200, 300, 400, 500 and 600 yards. I've joined the Desert Sportsman's Club and the Boulder City range near my new place, and will be shooting at these two ranges to test my bullets. At 100 yards I shoot at a sheet of printer paper with 20 yellow 5/8" targets per page, which I make on my computer (example of one such target above). In case you're wondering why I didn't hit the center of the target in the picture, I adjust my windage and elevation just a little off of the 1/8" black center dot to allow me to maintain my point of aim (POA). In this case I want my point of aim and point of impact to be just a little bit different. Once you shoot away your POA it is harder to have a precise POI. Here is one where I put five bullets through the same hole, which measured 0.292" at the widest. Subtract 0.243" for the diameter of the bullets shot, and you get a 0.049" group. You may well be able to beat this one. Try my bullets and see what you can do with them!
Note the even, smooth tips.
My VLDs come to you already tipped up on a John Hoover die!
Another aspect that particularly effects all of my bullets is that when you inspect most other bullets with a similar profile, the tip has a jagged tooth appearance. Not mine! Dave has the incredible good sense to actually place the center line of his dies in the CENTER of them, which allows the copper to draw up evenly, leaving a square tip. That means the thickness of the copper jacket is consistent and the bullet is concentric. On my VLDs I put them through an extra die to close the meplat extremely close together, which no other bullet maker does for you, so my bullets are ready to shoot right after you sort them. When you do your own measurements, and find how consistent my bullets actually are, you may even stop sorting!
Regarding 85gr, 88gr, 90gr or 95gr 6mm bullets: I called Berger 3/4/14 to check on my back order from 3/20/12, for these J4s, needed to build those sizes, and was told "maybe I'd get them by the middle of June, 2014." That's a year and a half wait for those! I have material for all other 6mm bullets. I've been waiting a few months for more lead but should have more in a couple weeks. I can now also build 6.5mms with a flat base. I can take orders for all of my 6.5mm. I have decided to add 136gr as an option to my 6.5mm line.
