Thread: Turned projectiles

  1. #1

    Turned projectiles

    We are looking at offering a range of CNC turned brass target projectiles from Extreme Performance.

    They would be available in: 5.56, 6mm, 6.5mm, 30 cal, 338 and 50 cal. Prices TBC.

    I'm currently gauging interest in these and wanted to hear from SD members who might use them. Please note, if you haven't encountered these before, they cannot be used on MoD ranges or for hunting.

    When we are RFD, all except 338 and 50 cal may be available in hollow point versions, however as stated above, there are restrictions on their use in the UK.

    Currently available I purchased some in .224 both solids and hollow points some years ago. As yet not reloaded them as not sure what data to use and was concerned to what the barrel fouling would be like.

    The selection I have are very well made, consistent in weight and are long so BC should be good.

    Must have a play some day.


    Obviously would need to be same price or cheaper than sierra or alike to be viable.

    If anyone is considering trying these, then I can highly recommend them, I use them in 308, 338lm and 50cal and the consistency of the projectiles has to be seen to be believed. My last batch of 500 .50cal projectiles were identical for weight (to the grain!) Length and diameter!! (From same source)

    Hi folks, thank you for the responses. I will publish a list of prices and weights etc. shortly. There are a few details to finalise first and I prefer to get them photographed and so forth before they go on the site. However, I think they should satisfy most appetites.

    Please remember that these are not allowed on MoD ranges, Bisley or for casual hunting in the UK. As one poster said on another site: you'll be in a whole pile of **** if you do.

    How about doing them in big calibers like .458 and .416. I'm sure people would be interested for dangerous game. It's a small market but it's there.

    Hi Jon,
    I'm potentially interested in some that would suit a .338 LapMag with 1-9.5" barrel.
    Also just to slightly correct you, they are permitted on several MOD LFTTA ranges and could be used for hunting in the UK, depending on design spec etc.
    Cheers,
    Tiff

    Hi Tiff, My apologies - I've just found your post. Mail me direct on sales@jdreloading.com and I'll get you what you need.

    And yes, you're quite right. There are some exceptions as you point out. Thank you for picking that up.
