225 or 230 gr .45 cal saboted bullet
 
I would sure like to see barnes come up with a .45 cal saboted load in maybe 225 or 230 gr?
Something moe than 200 gr or 195 gr.
any comments?

If it were a copper bullet, it may end up too long to shoot accurately in common standard twist barrels, e.g. 1:28.

Knight offers a .40x200 grain bullet - that is an awesome bullet

A copper bullet like you are describing is in the works but not by Barnes. It requires a faster twist for best results. So far the testing results are mixed and the best results have been with twists faster than 1-22. This bullet though has a long "pointy" ogive because they wanted a high BC. A less aggressive ogive would likely work in a slower twist just fine with upper end loads.

Ive been begging for a 220-230gr copper bullet that mimics the Barnes 195gr profile for a long time but i don't see it happening.

Forgot to add this one may be coming shortly.... hopefully...



40x230gr

Never mind... you are looking for a good .452x200/230 grain bullet...

But you know you can put either of these .40 cal. bullets in a 40x50 cal. sabot

225 or 230 gr .45 cal saboted bullet


I think he wants a heavier 45cal sabot option similar to a Barnes 195gr. Im assuming he wants a monolithic bullet since he mentioned Barnes. Im under the impression that Cutting Edge Bullets will gladly make whatever you want if you order enough.

I am still not sure exactly... I do not shoot many Barnes bullets at all but I thought the 195 was a 40 cal bullet???

That is correct. The Barnes 195gr is 40cal and offered in a tan MMP 45x40 sabot.

Precision Rifle makes 220, 240 and 260 grain .400 Dead Center bullets.
http://prbullet.com/shop/products.ph...tAsc=1&nPage=1

Starting tonight at midnight through midnight Friday Precision Rifle is having a 40% off sale.

I shot these 240gr Precision Rifle Dead Center bullets in a smokeless muzzleloader but used Harvester blue smooth sabots for better accuracy. Even killed a deer with one and the exit is seen in the picture. So much for reports of them blowing up on impact :sheep:




Cutting Edge is making .400 240gr bullets. They however will not shoot with sabots as of yet. They are very accurate sabotless in my .392/.400 Pacnor barrel full form sabotless.
