Those Raptors sound great for the 300BLK & I think might be good in the 350 Legend or the 357AR (rimless 357 Maximum) wish I could get them easier here in NZ !

Indeed they do. I am a big 300 BLK fan, load the 100 FB Raptor with 20.3/WW 296 54000 PSI. 16 inch guns at 2550 fps and it is devastating on deer/pigs and even black bear. It is an excellent cartridge/bullet combo for younger hunters. I also use the 100 FB Raptor in 308 Winchester, 300 Winchester, and remove the Talon Tips for a devastating 30/30 load. I see in this thread I received an order of 2500 in 2019, many which went into 300 BLK. I used those, and a couple of months ago had to re-order a new batch of 3000.

Since I would not hunt larger than deer/pigs/black bear with .308 caliber, the 100 FB Raptor serves ALL my requirements for any cartridge I shoot in .308 caliber..............Should I move to larger game, then I would move up in caliber as well............That said, my late friend and hunting partner used the 100 Raptor in his 30/06 extensively in culling operations in Africa, taking many wildebeests, oryx, and other similar sized plains game with it very successfully.

Hi,
I remembered you mentioned a dealer in Gauteng regarding a Rigby 350? May I ask who that is? I’m a collector of rigby rifles. Many thanks. John
I am alive and trying to find some hard-to-find reloading dies in .475 #2 (not Jeffreys)
Hi, I’m going on a Leopard & Lion hunt, I’m taking my 338 Blaser mag loaded with 225gr Nosler Accubond moving at 2850ft/s. Will the Nosler Accubond be an excellent bullet on this leopard & lion? Thanks
