PostSubject: BLOODLINE BULLETS   July 20th 2014, 10:07 am

I have been playing with these bullets for about two weeks now, and finally found the magic formula for them. These bullets are made from brass which makes them a bit harder than the copper ones I usually use, so they are a bit harder to size, but the trick to them is to anneal them, and once you drop them in cold water they actually shrink and they become a bit softer, and I do not have to use three different dies to size them, only one die and no knurling. Took it out today to get this gun ready for deer season which is not to far out now. The load was 10/50, 4759/4198. Sighted her in at 100 yards, which as you will see it shot great, might have tweak it a bit but for now she is fine, and also shot her at 200 yrds, and I was happy with it. So this one is ready. Here are the pics. First is the 200 yrds one and the second is the 100yrds.

excellent accuracy! Better than what ive seen from them in sabot form. Careful with heating, they are not 100% brass, they do contain lead.

FG I really appreciate the warning about the lead. I thought they were all brass according to what Knight claims. I will be careful. Just they are outstanding out of my MAC.

Great job buddy! That's what I've been expecting. Was that the Bloodline 250?

Yes that was the BLOODLINE 250 gr. we talked about a while back. All it needed was the annealing process, and BINGO.

Excellent shooting Carlos and new bullet development. I've been interested in this bullet for sometime now but have yet to shot the samples I have. Sqezer sent me some 185 & 220 that I can run saboted and my BIL sent me some 275. I was thinking it could be a great bullet for public land hunting where it's better to over kill than to allow it to run over the ridge. I also don't need a high BC since most of the shots are under 100 yards. 
How hot did you get the bullets? How did you heat them?  I have seen on another site putting them on a stove top element but I can't do that since I have a flat top cooking surface.

Biddler2, all I did was put them on a piece of flat iron over a pan of cold water. I heated them up with a hand held propane torch until they were cherry red hot and just push them over in to the water. like I said they did shrink in size and all I did was size them thru the .451 die, and down the bore.

Easy enough, once I get a sizing die I will have to give them a try.

Thanks sqezer for correcting me, I remember the 185 but never can remember if it's 200 or 220. I knew they were 40 cal and it would take a harvester smooth light blue sabot. The 275's would need the process Carlos performed.
Since I'm pushing the 200 gr SST at 2600fps I imagine the 185 would be a touch faster and with the segmenting petals would work really well with little recoil. I will probably also try Toby Bridges trick of adding a PT gold tip to them to bring the BC closer to the SST when hunting.
