Precision Ballistics LLC
You have discovered the site where you can buy the finest, most accurate, world-class precision 6mm (.243"), and 6.5mm (.264") custom bench rest, long range & varmint bullets on the market! I build bullets only. This is not loaded ammunition! Please note that I directly ship my products ONLY to USA addresses. If you do not have a USA mailing address, please contact me for export information. Call me at 702-331-1337 (I'm in Pacific Standard Time Zone) or use my Contact page to email me. If you have problems using that just email me at email@example.com with your regular email. 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. Please NOTE: I get 20+ scam calls a day and have my phone going through an answering machine which picks up after two rings. I'm always happy to talk with my customers and if you want to talk leave a message and I'll return you call. 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! 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 6 sizes of 6mm low drag bullets I make are 90gr, 95gr, 100gr, 103gr, 105gr, and 108gr, and they use a tangent 15 ogive that is then closed tightly with a John Hoover tipping die built specifically for my bullets. I am offering my 6.5mm bullets in 4 sizes: 130gr, 136gr, 139gr and 142gr. I am currently out of J4s in 6.5mm so cannot build these right now. They have a 15 tangent ogive which is closed with a Hoover tipping die, specifically built for my bullets. The boat tail is 0.200" by 10 degrees. I can use a flat base if requested. These things are what sets Precision Ballistics LLC apart from all the rest! 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 jackets I have at the time. 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. The tolerance I use is less than 1/16 of a thousandth of an inch (0.00005")! Most bullet makers work with 1-3 diameter sizes of seating punches and a tolerance of 0.001-002". Because there is always variation in the internal diameter of jackets, I use 18 different diameter seating punches, in 0.00005" increments, to assure a proper fit! That improves the center of gravity and makes a cleaner spiral flight which helps prevent "fliers". My other 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.

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.

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 low drag bullets 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. Hunters often ask me to make the meplats .30"-.35" to open up better in game. I'm happy to make the tips any way you want them! Closing the tips does not effect accuracy, only the BC. When you do your own measurements, and find how consistent my bullets actually are, you may even stop sorting!
Same three bullets in above shots showing 10 tangent, 6 tangent/9 secant, and 8 tangent ogives, as well as 0.175"x10 degree and 0.062"x14 degree and flat bases. These are 105grTVLD 10 ogive, 85grBT 6/9 ogive, and 85grFB 8 ogive. Meplats are 0.005", 0.040" and 0.040".

Just in case anyone wonders if putting my low drag bullets through my Tipping Die to close up the meplats, throws off their concentricity, it doesn't! Dave Detsch sent me his father's bullet spinner to check them so I checked my low drag bullets before and after I tipped them. Both were dead nuts perfect! The needle never moved! I couldn't resist, so I checked bullets made in all of Dave's dies. The needle didn't move on ANY of them! ALL come out dead nuts perfect! PERIOD!

Here's old "Bughole" in front of my bullet display in Wright City, MO at the NBRSA Nationals and the WBC-13, September, 2015.
Here are two of my friends and customers, Egan O'Brien and Werner Zawadzki, who shoot my bullets. They were among other of my customers, such as Roger Gower and others, at the 2018 Original Pennsylvania 1000 yard World Open match.

VERY nice way to start the new year!
Are the weights on my shop pull chains over the top?
I am out of 1.150" 6mm J4 jackets, used to build 6mm bullets weighing 100gr - 110gr. They are on order, and I will post here when I have them. I heard from Berger 8/3/21 that they will ship my order between March and August of 2022. I do have a good supply now of cores that will make 103s, 105s 107s and 108s when my J4s arrive. I have started a "Wait List" for customers who wish to order my bullets in that size range and are willing to wait until I am able to build them. I will build these in order of date requested, and no money is required to hold your place in line. Sorry for the inconvenience. I do have plenty of all other sizes of 6mm J4s to build 66gr-95gr and 113gr-119gr 6mm bullets. I am still unable to build 6.5mm bullets.
Here's "mini me" currently at 195 pounds, vs that guy to the left who weighed 370 pounds. It took 22 months, gastric sleeve surgery and a heck of a lot of work, but I currently wear size L, rather than size 5XL. In case anyone's wondering, I CAN still build 6mm bullets just fine!
