Now with the B&M's being established, Load Data and Pressure Data complete, bullet design and testing complete for the B&M's, I have turned much of my attention to other areas of research. For over 10 years we have worked very hard to make the B&M Rifles & Cartridges the best they could be, through good and reliable load data to bullet design. We are there! With these things established and completed, it is time to do some other work that has my interest as well.
My field operations has slowed down considerably. There is nothing left to prove, nor field test. Bullets from both Cutting Edge and North Fork have been perfected, B&M cartridges and rifles have been proven, there is just not anywhere for me to go from there. With this in mind, I am taking a break from the field.
Some of the things we have been working on here will be eventually posted on the "Additional Research Page". A few of the projects we have been working on include Pressure and Load data for 300 Blackout, 338 Federal, 45 Colt, 45 ACP, 7.62X40, 300 Winchester Mag, and recently developing new load data for 44 Auto mag, which will be used in a New Version of that famous Handgun. Along with this data we have also been working with some new bullets for some of these cartridges, from both Cutting Edge and North Fork of course. We are very excited about a new 100 Flat Base Raptor in .308, designed by CEB specifically for 300 Blackout and 7.62X40, but just extreme in other .308 cartridges as well, such as 308 Winchester and 300 Winchester Mag. Some new data with this bullet in 300 Winchester takes it to just a tad under 4000 fps! And it takes 300 Blackout into new and far more advanced territory. Once again, we are looking at Bullet Tech to enhance our cartridges of interest.
While there may not be a lot of B&M new activity or new cartridges, we are not idle here by any stretch.
