Custom 48gr 20 caliber VLD bullets

Postby RwBeV » Fri Oct 20, 2017 6:27 am

I am selling custom 48gr .204 rebated boat tail bullets. The VLD have a 10 Ogive, and will take at least a 10 twist to stabilize. They are $30/100 +shipping, untill I run out of jackets, when I have to make jackets the price will go up (more work). I can also make a flat base version in either 8 or 10 Ogive.

Thanks
Bob

Would your flat base version need a 10 twist or would a slower twist work with it? Would the 8 or 10 ogive work better in the flat base with an 11 twist? Thanks

It would make no difference if it where flat base or boat tail, the length of the bullet is what determines the twist needed. I have shot them in 11 twist I just don't know how far they will be stable.

Ok, didn't know if your flat base die was somehow different and not so much of a "vld" type bullet. Any chance that you might expand your bullet making inventory? I would really like for someone to look at the Sierra #1390 bullet which is a 55gr 22 caliber HP bullet...in my opinion, this is the ultimate coyote killing bullet...it would be great to see someone scale this bullet down to 20cal somewhere in the 40 to 48gr weight for an 11 twist 20cal. Anyway, enough rambling...thanks for the reply and see what you can do about scaling the #1390 down to a 20cal. ;)

Hey Gene, Yes Im always looking for a better bullet, right now Im kind of limited on what jackets I can get my hands on or make myself. In my opinion the 53gr Hornady HP Match was the ultimate coyote bullet, been killing dogs with it for over 40 years. I think they changed there jacket sometime recently, it does not act the same as the older bullets I have. So yes Im looking at some sort of replacement that I can make, also looking at a 20 caliber flat base to copy the performance of the old 53gr. Maybe a 42 to 45gr, just have to play with it and see what works.

Sounds great...get in touch with me if/when you get something going...that sierra #1390 if scaled down to a 20cal would be the ticket I think...42gr would be fantastic. If you needed a couple of the #1390's for a reference, let me know and I will send you some.
