In other events we are looking at a series of new scopes for the B&Ms. I really like some of the Nikons I have been working with. Hopefully we will see if they hold up and report back some good news about them later on.
Accurate Innovations is now going to be able to make stocks for the various Winchester M70 WSSM actions. Of course, our big interest is a really classy Wood Stock, for the B&M Super Shorts! I have already sent Wes a 50 B&M Super Short to have the first AI Stock done. This is going to be a very nice addition, and enhance the Super Shorts, while adding versatility. Not to mention, Drop Dead Gorgeous!
Wow, December, Again? How fast! Looking forward greatly to the holidays of course, and the break it brings. Shortly after Christmas we are lucky to be host to Paul and Diedre Truccolo from Australia for a few days! We are very much looking forward to their visit. Right after that, January 2, Andrew will be arriving from South Africa, and on the 4th we are all packing up for Dallas Safari Club Convention 5-8th. We will be doing a lot of visiting with our AR friends in Dallas, and everyone is really looking forward to that, with me at the top of the list! After we all return home then our friend Daryl Lenkic will be arriving on the 9th from Australia for a visit and I suppose Daryl, Andrew, and myself will be doing some serious big bore shooting during his visit as well! It's going to be a busy few weeks here, and we are looking forward to every minute of it!

November 2011 News
Thus far we have been busy this month. In addition to working with and testing the various new ESP Raptors, mostly in smaller calibers, we have been extremely busy with the new 475 B&M Load Data. I have it posted now as of 11/21/2011 on the 475 B&M page for all those interested.
Other news, I have been in contact, and have contracted with Dieter Horneber to make a large run of 9.3 B&M head stamped brass, and of course 475 B&M head stamped brass. Dieter informs me it should be ready in January, if I predict Dieter, I would say more like March! I have specified that the brass be capable of over 65000 PSI.
And more reports keep coming from the field on the BBW#13 Solids and NonCons, and even the new 308 caliber ESP Raptors, all extremely positive, on every single count. From Elephants to deer, the results are coming in and they are incredible to say the least. So much so that I am going to have to do a CEB BBW#13 Page just to show you some of these reports! Match one of the B&M Rifles/Cartridges with these bullets, and one cannot fail if you do your part!
October 2011 News
B&M news is that I am currently working on 475 B&M Data with the new bullets from Cutting Edge and North Fork. Soon as I get viable data, it will be posted on the 475 B&M Page. I have for the most part completed Load Data with the 475 B&M Super Short, it is now posted of course on the 475 B&M Super Short page. 475 B&M, 458 B&M, 416 B&M, 9.3 B&M Hornady Dies all came in from Hornady, and in stock. Still awaiting 50 B&M Alaskan.
Bullet News, we continue to get excellent reports from the field on all the Cutting Edge BBW#13 Solids that have been used on elephant. All reports are incredibly positive. Many reports coming in on the NonCons as well, and to a man everyone says, "The most Deadly Bullet I have ever Witnessed", I concur with that myself.
Big bullet news of late is also from Cutting Edge. Our friend BoomStick from Accurate Reloading came up with an off the wall idea of having a "Double Ended BBW#13 Bullet". Meaning, a BBW#13 Solid on one end, and a BBW#13 NonCon on the other! Cutting Edge made it a reality, and I have been doing the test work, and it's past incredible, going into what I believe to be the next biggest bullet technical advancement in 30 years! Granted the parents of this, the BBW#13 Profile is top end in my opinion, and everyone who has seen or tried it! This bullet was made in .308 caliber to begin with and it works, both ends, as designed!
It is called the ESP Raptor. ESP-- Enhanced System Projectile. That it is! One can load this as a BBW#13 Solid, as a standard BBW#13 NonCon, or add a Hi BC Tip and it's range is greatly extended due to the higher BC. All this will fit in most standard magazines, with the tip added if desired. The Raptor is designed light for caliber, in .308 it weighs 130 grs. However, regardless being light for caliber, in all Terminal Tests it out penetrates, and out performs even the heaviest of conventional .308 caliber bullets! Bullet Tech at it's very best.
