    Default Cavity Back Bullets Thread

    I was asked by the mods to bring the thread about my new product over here while waiting for the site hosts/owners to get a hold of me for becoming a sponsor/vendor.
    I was given permission to include our website.
    www.cavitybackbullets.com

    We should bring all discussions on the product over here until such time as they contact me.
    There is a thread in the bullets listings started for results of loads and testing.

    Currently we have in the 6.8/.277:
    120 grain MKZ (Maximum Kill Zone)
    105 grain MKZ (Maximum Kill Zone)
    120 grain TMT (Tactical Match Target)

    There is another 6.8 bullet in prototype as well. Feel free to weigh in on what you would like to see.

    In the 6.5mm/.264 we have:
    118 grain MKZ (Maximum Kill Zone)
    105 grain MKZ (Maximum Kill Zone)

    I am working on a company road map of calibers and weights and purposes and will make it public when completed.

    Thank you all for you awesome support in our new venture!

    Just got home from work and my 120 TMT were waiting for me! Can't wait to test these out on the 600 yard line! They look great, appear very uniform, they should produce some good scores!

    Tagging on for the latest updates. I finished opening up the front of a PRI mag today. I can now pretty easily load five rounds. I loaded up five of the 120s in my 270AR out to 2.34" with 36 grains of 8208. I'll see how they shoot tomorrow. My chrony crapped out on me so I'll have to wait to give some velocity numbers. I ordered a new one today from Midway.

    If I were to load the 105's at 2.26", would I expect much of a performance gain at all over a 95 gr TTSX at the same OAL? This is out of a 16" barrel using A2200.

    The shortest I recommend loading them is 2.28 or 2.285. As the ogive will start being inside the case mouth after that. At that length they will fit in any mag except a Barrett.
    Yes you will see improvement over a 95 TTSX at 2.28. My bullets have less engraving friction and a higher BC. They also expand more.

    My bullets are designed to fit loaded at mag length but not SAAMI length. They also show great improvement loaded long. All reports so far have them running 75 to 100 fps faster than a comparable weight bullet, across both 6.8 and 6.5.

    How do you think these would do at higher than your listed speeds? I think I can get the 120s close to 3100 and the 105 over 3200 I just don't want them to go poof if I shoot a deer at 50 yards.

    They won't go poof, they could just loose petals over the listed speeds. The petals will come off causing a substantial wound channel and the body of the bullet will continue straight thru. The 3 petals will radiate outward but stay together like 3 small bullets themselves.
    Xman shot them at 3000 fps and experienced this.
    Unlike a lead bullet they will not disintegrate.
