    I picked up a prefit barrel for my ARC Nuke. It was a really good price, so I dont mind tailoring the bullet to the existing freebore instead of vice versa. Not really a competition shooter, just like banging steel and printing tiny little groups. The barrel has a .105 freebore - which heavy class bullet would be suggested? Ive read it may be too long for the 105 hybrid, but the 107 SMK and 108 ELDM would be just about right - any truth to that?

    (dont forget about the rdf)

    All of those will do well enough. Too many people shooting all of them to not be fine.

    All of those bullets you listed will shoot with the .105 freebore. I am shooting the same rig as you and the 105's all shoot well. Good shooting.

    Don't forget to check the classified section. Lots of great bullets on there now. I'd buy some more but I get the " how many bullets do you really need?"

    108 Bergers, N140 (preferred, for me) or Varget will do awesome for you 300 yds plus.. very easy bullet to tune with great accuracy

    for 100 to 300 yds, the 80 Berger with N135 is killer

    Where do you go to buy them? I always thought there was a waiting period on these.

    Winny, all the bullets you mentioned will should shoot fine in that freebore. What brand prefit and contour, length is the barrel?

    I've bought his machine-made bullet, the VT-TAC, 3 times and they've always been in stock. His hand pulled ones...now that's a different story. Tom Jacobs makes them - @Tom E here on the forum. Reach out to him directly.
