Thread: Trophy Bonded Bear Claw "Tipped" Version Pics

    Default Trophy Bonded Bear Claw "Tipped" Version Pics

    I have a couple pics for you guys that have been curious about these new bullets. First off, the bad news is that they will not be offering these bullets for handloading, they are only available in Federal factory ammo. I dont reload so no biggy to me but some will be upset. I have always been a big fan of the performance from Swift A-Frames and Sierra TBBC's but the only downside has been the fact that they lack in the performance dept for long range shooting, tended to drop like a rock. These new TBBC Tipped bullets report to have a better BC and with it flatter trajectory than most of its big game bullet competitors. Heres a couple pics of a 180 Tipped TBBC out of a 300WSM. It was retrieved out of a running Kudu that was shot at 200 yards, cant ask for a better looking bullet! Reported that it retained 94% of its original weight

    Very nice looking indeed. To bad they are not offered to hand loaders.

    When did you shoot a running Kudu at 200 yards. Did you go to AFRICA?

    Default My elk

    I shot my elk with some winchester 180 grn. 300 wsm at 400 yards. Could not find the bullets b/c they went clean through.
