    Federal EDGE TLR'S Have arrived!

    The wait for the new Federal EDGE TLR is finally over! We have secured the first shipment of these new generation long range projectiles and have just listed them on @blackwatchreloading.co.nz

    Tech Info

    Thes pills have a solid shank with a bonded lead core and a hollow nose topped with a heat resistant polymer tip. I'm expecting them to shoot similar to a ELD X but with complete weight retention and predictable expansion.

    30CAL

    175gr
    BC .536

    200gr
    BC .625

    On a side note I have loaded up the first batch of the 200gr for testing this weekend in the 300BM. Weight variation over the whole pack was 2/10gr and Ogive length variation was +- .002. Thats quite impressive for a bullet with this much technical construction!

    How have they verified the BC ? 0.61 for a 155 gn 7mm sounds great, but maybe a tad “optimistic”?

    Doppler Radar. I don't think they would want to shoot themselves in the foot with something like that after seeing the issues other manufacturers have had..

    Aye that’s good, the other question/concern I have is the solid Copper design which is great for close ranges, but I’d be worried about terminal performance at long range.

    @chainsaw Yea I guess thats what they are trying to address here with only the shank been solid and the forward/expanding area of the bullet been lead bonded with a hollow tip to initiate expansion topped with a poly tip.

    Pulled these out from behind the target into a clay bank at 100yrds. From a 300wm federal factory ammo. I think the 175. Held together well. The guy has shot a few bull tahr now at about 400m with them and they didn’t move much.
