I think my new reloading bench needs this poster on it. Any idea what the dimensions are of each size in inches? Where could I go to get this printed? Kinkos?

My next bullet order is not going to be until the 85gr Nosler Etip gets released. Hopefully sometime in April. Then I will be order those and some of the 100gr Hornady bullets. I will gladly send you one of each.

Constructor sent the 120 gr. prototype...not sure where he got it.

Yeah, those Elite's are gonna be the "covergirls" of the 6.8!:a44:

The poster link is 2500x1430 pixels. The original is 3212x1835, but apparently hunt101.com has a size limitation. Print size can be adjusted using a software application like Photoshop, but the print quality would look better if you used the original jpeg image file.

If you want a copy of the original file (it's about 5mb), PM me your email address and I'll send it to you. I expect the original would look decent (not magazine quality, but OK) printed on 11" x 17".

Anyone experienced using Photoshop, who has access to a wide format color printer should be able to print it for you.

The 120 came from Jack-O
The Ogive has a very good shape like the 90gr TNT, the body plenty long to stay straight in the bore so I think it would be very accurate if his bullet maker is back in business after moving.

It really looks great for a bolt action 6.8...at only 1.1" in length, I was shocked when I checked the COL to lands on my new bolt gun and found it to be right at 2.5"! That translates to only .286" of bullet taking up case capacity! You could put a lot of powder under that!:a04:

Quickload shows 31.7 gr. of H335 will yield 2657 fps with pressure at 58,400 psi from a 20" barrel.

That 120 HP looks well thought out, I like the look. Seems like it is designed specifically for the 6.8, the ogive should give some great accuracy potential if the quality is good, and should have good long range expansion too. Anyone know at what fps the BC is calculated at and what the length of the boattail is?

After looking closer, is it maybe a flatbase?

Just about any full service print shop should be able to read a .jpg file from a USB thumb drive. Use the 'poster' size file for best resolution.

It's still in development. we have new specs for it that should iron out most of the issues with it. the goal is to be able to push it to 2600 and still be supersonic out to 800-900 (1000 if we can) with frag still available at 600.

at this point it might be dead tho. I could use a new bullet maker if anyone has a source.

Damn Jack-O....that sucks, it looks like a great design for one of the heavier 6.8 offerings. Wonder if Elite would take up the venture?

It looks like a good one, I hope it works out for you. My good friend who's basically my shooting mentor has a manual bullet press but it is a very tedious process for large production. He still makes some 6mm and .17s but its mostly for personal use now. His 128grain 6mm is wicked, but he can't get the long jackets anymore. I've been talking to him about the 6.8 and he just gave me some bullets to try today. I'll post some pics in a bit.

Yeah, it's hard to get 'em all to stand still and smile at the same time...especially that cute little guy on the end. His feet are so small...just keeps falling over and knocking his brothers out of position and then we have to start over again...:a21:

Of course, if you've tried to shoot family portraits with two or more little ones, you're familiar with the routine.:a42:
