172-26-FN GC BM2 Rerun - also Shorter Version?
« on: September 15, 2018, 05:06:50 PM »
This is an excellent Varmint bullet, and now within the capabilities of modern PCP airguns, using the TJ's 9" twist barrel....



Let's get this back in stock.... Add your name if you are interested in seeing an Inventory Run.... This bullet is a scaled down version of the excellent RCBS 22-055....

It should be possible to also do a short version using the same tooling, like was done with the 6mm.... Leave off the gas check section by machining shallower, for a PB version with an overall length of 0.443" and a weight of about 23 gr....

I would like a 2-cavity Aluminum.... with a Lyman HP pin in one side if possible.... both standard and short versions if they become available....  8)

Thanks for running these, Al.... I see you even have a few single cavity HP moulds available.... looking forward to checking those out.... Should be a devastating Varmint bullet for PCP airguns, providing you have a 0.172" caliber 9" twist barrel like the TJ's, not the usual slow twist airgun .177 cal....
