Guys, I’m currently working with a guy that regularly hunts and hangs out with the president from Sierra bullets.
I asked if they might take suggestions for a new design, and he’s going to ask.

So, I was thinking something like the pro hunter, but with a thinner jacket or capable of opening at lower velocity for the wolverine.

Any thoughts??

YES!!!!!   Guys can chime in on the type of bullet but I have the profile design that allows the full 2.26" + load length on our 95 grain copper.  That's the trick - get the bullet shape to allow the 2.26 COAL and you get a LOT more powder under the bullet.  Quite honestly if we have a full complement of bullets with this particular shape nose there would be a lot of performance increases overall.

Let me know how I can help!

How about something in the 100gr. dept, to help aid in wlv use, like pro-hunter with thinner upper jacket. Just an idea.

Agreed, It sounds like you guys already dialed in the sweet spot for profile. So do you think it would be better for me to just give him a few of my MDWS wolvy projectiles, and or do you have schematics to pass along? Sorry, I’m learning here 😉... I think this profile, Sierra Pro Hunter with a thinner jacket would be hard to beat in the wolvy.

I can send a few projectiles and drawings... whatever it takes.

I'd like to see a less expensive analogue of Nosler's 100gr Accubond.  Good weight, good BC, good shape... but they are too expensive.  Could do away with the poly tip if that helped keep the price down.  Looking for a bullet good enough for hunting, cheap enough for plinking, and accurate enough for target work.

I second what Ranger Joe says. That would be the easiest route. Although, I'd like Nosler or anyone else to make a facsimile of a 100 gr. Ballistic tip. A little more fragmentation than the accubond, but still enough integrity to knock the snot out of deer and antelope. Besides, they could also market it to the 270 crowd as a varmint bullet!

Like everyone else, I'd like something in the 100gr department that is a all a round good bullet for medium sized game and accurate enough for target shooting.
