Re: Source for 6mm 115 DTACS BN

I just talked with the tech guy about running the boron coated 115's and he said not to worry about the issues you have with Molly coated bullets... So i decided to run the nitride's in my new .243.

You guys have any feelings about the coated ones?

They run just fine for me....they aren't "coated" in any different way than the Moly ones are, it's just a different dust on the bullet.

Re: Source for 6mm 115 DTACS BN

The tech guy said that the nitride burns off and doesn't leave anything on the barrel like Molly does... who knows if hes just pushing his product or not. 243's life is so short anyway I'll just shoot whatever I can find available.... hah

    Creedmore sports in Oceanside also carries the 115 DTAC with BN.

    You can add 20 points of BC if you wish to run them through the pointing die.

    BTW, I was passing info about the DTAC to the JBM website owner (which he graciously added to his ballistics tool BTW) and found that after we called Superior Shooting Systems, their BC claim for the naked 115gr was .575 intead of .585 which seems to be published online in a few places. Since the .575 number was less than I had in my spreadsheet, I rechecked it and sure enough it looks like they have reduced their original BC claim.

    Just a heads up.....
