HV BULLETS TECHNICAL DATA

Should you need any information about the suitability for specific calibres which are not to be found on this page please e-mail us.


Load Data CIP and SAAMI Caliber Specifications

Notes

1. Our bullet numbers are composed as follows: The first three digits denote the caliber(224, 308, 375 etc). The next three digits give the weight in grains(035, 150, 200 etc). The two letters indicate the type of bullet (HV, FN, SP, HP or HG) and the last three digits, the part number which serves as a double check.

2. Use this table as follows: Find your cartridge in the right hand column. Bullet numbers are in the left hand column. If more than one bullet weight is listed for your cartridge, click on the bullet number to see the individual bullet data profile to determine which is the best bullet choice according to the steps below: 

A.)  Match the bullet length correctly with the twist rate of your rifle and with the intended range distance in mind.

B.)  Check that the launch speed is more than what the cartridge can develop.

C.)  Check the bullet protrusion to see if the cartridge will fit your rifle.

 Click on the bullet number to see individual bullet profile pages.
 Any blank blocks indicate that the data is not yet available. Please contact us if you need any such information.
