    62gr FB .750

    I recently acquired some 62gr FB 6mm bullets that were made on a .750 jacket from a fella, and these bullets have been absolutely fantastic.
    The fella that I got them from doesn't know who made them or even what die they were made on. So needless to say, unless I have George make a die, I will not be getting any more of these.
    What I would like to try, is to find someone who can make me a 62gr FB bullet on a .750 jacket. Does anyone know, where I might source something like this? I know stay moly isn't making any .750 jackets, so I realize I might be out of luck. If someone can help get me in the right direction, I would greatly appreciate it. thanks lee

    I'm stretching the memory a bit but I am pretty sure Ed Watson made some when he was still with us. You might check with Bart to see if he got the dies.

    Bart is a bullet maker. No time to keep up with the web site with the 968 phone calls he gets every day

    Nobody makes .750 jackets at this time, so unless you can find someone with a stash they are willing to part with its not happening.. just an interesting side point what twist are you shooting.

    the small stash of 62grain bullets that I have acquired are extremely sharp on the corners of the flat base.er I personally haven't seen another FB bullet that is as sharp on the corners as these are.
    I am no bullet maker, but a couple of folks that I have shown these bullets to, that make bullets themselves, cant believe how sharp the corners are. One fella said that the jackets must be really thin?? I wouldn't know.

    I have shot these bullets in everything from a 13.5 to 14 twist. Twist doesn't seem to matter.
    I also realize I don't have to have a bullet made on a .750 jacket but these shot so well, I thought I would like to try and find something else that is similar. I can send you a few George if you want to look them over. I would love to have your opinion. I would also love to know what die these came from. I realize that probably isn't going to happen. Lee

    Try Knight Bullets. Brady has made these bullets in the past.

    Question Just curious...

    Lee,

    I make a 62gr on a .790 jacket.. The core is down at the beginning of the interior flutes... Stable reliable bullet, much like
    the Berger column.

    I'm curious where the lead line is on your 62's ... Possibly 80% up that .750 point... But Ogive angle and bearing surface will play a part on the lead line...

    How far will a strait pin go into the point bef contact lead....???
    Also I "may" have a leed on some .750 J4 jackets..?.... I think I may have a tiny stash..
