    Does anyone make .224 dia 62gr HPBT match bullets?

    I mean seriously... I can't find the "right" ones...

    I have some Berger 64gr HP match/varmint bullets (gonna try some 62gr of the same, but they're both without the boat-tail), and results are inconclusive out of my Swiss Arms... I want something just a little lighter, but with the boat-tail for increased BC with long range shooting.

    I'm limited for bullet weight as the Swiss is a 1 in 10" twist.

    Speers FMJ 62's are about the only thing I can recommend.

    I can't remember is Steve on CGS makes some. I know he makes some pretty kick ass bullets.

    Have you tried the 68gr Hornady boat tail hollow point match bullets? They have a wicked BC and they may very well work in a 1-10 twist.

    Hmm... I'll have to try the Hornady bullets then.

    I'll also PM Steve on CGS.

    I looked on the box last night and it says for 1-7 to 1-10 twist barrels. Mind you each gun seems to have it's own personality.

    Well, I contacted Steve on CGS and he's apparently out of the bullet making business...
