.311 (.303) Projectiles Available

Post by Rod_outbak » 04 Feb 2019, 9:47 am

Folks,

I have 3 boxes of 174Gn .311 (Manufactured for .303 British) custom projectiles available; made by B&T Energetics.
[Gent by the name of Bendon Worth]

Cost me about $69 per box of 80 when I had them made up in 2015.
I'm not really sure if Brendon is still selling direct; couldnt find his site last year when I was checking up on something else.

They arent a proper hollowpoint, as the hole doesnt extend right into the core. However, when Brendon heard that we would be mostly hunting with them, he said he would open the Meplat at the front out some more, to give us even better expansion. These projectiles were designed with hunting in mind, but some of his customers use them for distance shooting on the range.

The projectiles have the exact same ballistic profile as the MK7 military hardball(so the iron sights are all going to have the right holdovers etc), but he says they hit REALLY hard on game, and the front is very frangible, while the rear is quite hard.
All the projectiles he manufacturers are match-grade, and he keeps a database of the tweaks he does for each customer, in the event of repeat orders.

I'd part with these projectiles for $35 per box if you pay for postage.
Preference to someone who wants all 3 boxes.

See attached for an idea of them.

PM me if you are interested.

Cheers,

Rod.

Thanks for letting me know.

I had wondered, as I tried to contact him mid last year to pick his brains about some of the projectiles I'd bought..

I hope he pulls through.

Thanks again for letting me know.

Cheers,

Rod.
