Re: Copperhead 7mm 183-4 bullets

Re 7mm 183-184 grain VLD Copperhead Bullets Yes, the problem is most chamber reamers out there, have a long Freebore length, over the 0.200” long, which doesn’t suit this Bullet, something in the 0.150” Freebore will work as they need to be seated with at least 0.010”-0.015” jam into the lands, just...

Re: Sierra 110g SMK in 6mm

Hi Dave,
Re the Copperhead Bullets 6mm 112 grain VLD Bullets, the 1:8 twist barrel would be marginal, they have shot great in 1:7.5 twist barrels, just sent some to a PRS shooter in the US to test and has given some good feedback “shot great measured very consistent”

Re: New 7mm 178 grain VLD Copperhead Bullets

Thanks Rod, Yes...l guess l am being over cautious in recommending a 1:8.5 or 1:8 twist barrel with this projectile. This due to the ogive shape and the length of bearing surface, it may shoot fine in a 1:9 twist barrel, but time ndvtesting will tell. Will, take your advice, so looking at a 185-ish ...
