    52 grains HPBT bullets (.224")

    Hi guys,
    I am selling my .224" HPBT swaged match bullets. Berger jackets, pure lead, made with carbide dies.
    Bullets weight is 52.05 gr (±.08 gr variation, usually less). Meplat is 0.039". Just load and shoot.
    No need to sort them out. Don't know BC for now.
    I have attached a test target I run a few days back to see if they were doing good.
    I am charging to let go for the FIRST 500 $36/100 + shipping (right now, no idea of shipping costs. Will
    see it soon). Can pick up in Tauranga area. I have more approx 4800 jackets waiting for some cores.
    Any doubt, just send me an PM.
    Moderators, if I am not allowed to post it here, just please remove it.
    Cheers

    *edit: soon will be making .224 flat bases and 69 grains with longer jackets.

    Hi puku,

    Yes, they will be HPBT measuring around .93" long. I will be doing them in a month or so. Will let you know. Berger and/or StaMoly jackets.

    Very nice. We run 26gr BM2 with 53gr Sierra which yours are just as good. Top effort. Unfortunately still have about 400 to shoot but will get some in future. Tell us when the 69gr are available becausee Charlie Janes runs that in his Colt and I will run up some for him. Bless his sox.

    TeRei, sure will let you know. And I have plenty of jackets laying around here for the 52 gr. If you happen to need some, just let me know. Cheers
