    Yes, comparable load data to a 95 TTSX or 100gr Accubond.
    All my bullets can be used with similar weight load data.
    As always start 10% low and work up.
    Even single load ladder, .5 grain increments. Stop and back down at any signs of pressure.

    HTR told me both neck shots, both DRT.
    Complete pass thru, massive damage.
    Even on hogs there is complete pass thru. with massive damage.
    The 105 opens up as much as .675 and the 120 opens as much as .700
    Exit wounds have all been a 1/2 inch or better, lots of blood loss.

    I called them the MKZ (maximum kill zone) for a reason.
    Its early but the results are all the same. Full pass thru, massive damage where hit, even in hogs
    These bullets were designed to dump their energy in the animal.
    They dont come apart and leave lead in the meat.
    They work like a bullet should work by all accounts so far.

    I noticed the 30 grain A2200 load was super accurate but a little too hot in my barrel and gave fairly deep swipes.

    I had them loaded out to 2.295". Would love to see the "porototype" be an 80 grain screamer with higher BC versus other 80 and 85 grain bullets. That would be something.
    I can make anything I want. Thats the beauty of it.
    I can make a higher BC 85 grain bullet, it will be the length of the 95 TTSX or close to it.
    However how many will I sell is the question. It takes time to develop each bullet but you know that.
    The 105 is a great bullet, it loads more like a 95 or 100 grain as far as powder charge. Its faster than the other bullets in that class by all tests so far.
    It expands at a lower velocity than the others.
    Yet its selling slow, its new, people dont know it yet. It beats a 100 or 110 grain Accubond in all areas so far. Expansion, weight retention, BC, speed all of it. The best part is availability of it is in my control, no waiting on Nosler.
    As well they are accurate and easy to load and tune.
    I hope you try them out for a bit, I really appreciate your feed back and its an honor to have you use my bullets. I truly mean that.

    I wouldn't think twice about ordering some of those. But you're right, how many will you sell. I'd grab 200 of them, but then I'd probably be set for life.

    Just ordered 100 of the 105 grain 6.5mm bullets. I will be using them in my 6.5 Grendel Encore barrel (24") and my 6.5 TCU contender barrel (14").

    I also posted a thread over on the Specialty Pistols Forum. Although these were designed for MSRs these bullets will work great in the single shot handguns as well.

    Looks like the 68 105 and 120 MKZ are out of stock for me ??
    I have a buddy that won't give up his .223, so he/we are kinda both looking forward to seeing the .224 come out.. hoping heavier than 55gr with a good BC..

    They are, they both sold out today.
    There are more on the production schedule so it wont be to long before they are back in stock.
    I will do a bigger run this time.

    When I do the .225/5.56 it will be 65 to 70 grain in the MKZ. It is farther down the list but it is coming.

    What are your thoughts on running those in the 5.56x42mm?

    There are 3 calibers that I will take into consideration when I design them.
    The 5.56x45, 5.56x42 and .223 Predator.
    I will do the best I can to optimize them for those 3 calibers.
