i'm looking for makers of 20 cal long range bullets.
Berger 55gr or Amussig (sp?) makes custom 20 cal as well.
I am currently testing a 48 Grain HPRBT 20 caliber bullet that a good friend of mine designed. It does require a 9 twist barrel to stabilize. If it's something you might be interested in let me know and I can get you in touch with him.
from left to right: 39 sierra blitzking, new 48 grain rebatted boat tail, 50 grain Berger, 55 Grain Berger
Here are a few I have jotted down over the years , but I don't know if all are still in existence today : BlackHole Bullets , BIB , Calhoon , Custom Reloading Tools , Schroeder , Lucas , Badger Ridge , Unmussig , NoName Bullets , and Certech .
How are those 48's shooting?
Very good in initial testing, going to try some different loads and seat depths yet.
Explain to me what a rebatted bullet is and how it functions compared to a BT base bullet ! What are the advantages of the rebate ?
The idea is the rebate seals the bore like a flat base,but has the bc advantage of a vld
I have shot the Badger Ridge bullets in my coyote gun,they are flat out awesome,I want to try some of Blaine bullets too,I have some of the BiBs I need to try as well,not enough time in the day.
I dug out some of my old 20 Cal. Bullets . That 48 Gr. looks very similar to my old Lucas Bullets which weigh an actual 40.6 Gr . They are 0.708 in. OAL . These Bullets came from Lucas in Montana.
So what is the BC of the 48s??
Cost per 200?
I'm interested in trying the 48s
How does a guy get a box?

Look at high speed photos of bullets exiting the muzzle.
One wilk see powder gas moving in front of the bullet, forcing it to fly through disturbed air.
The effect is not as dramatic with flat base bullets, which explains why hyper precision contestants often use flat base for shorter range competitions.
The rebated boattail is claimed to act like a flst bse in directing gas away from the bullet'ts path while, at the same time, giving that advantages of a boat tail.
