The superior quality of Optimus Projectiles factory plant and equipment ensures that the final product is of a consistently excellent quality. In particular, the consistency of the projectile jacket's concentricity is always maintained by the projectile press. Many precision shooters appear to overlook this vitally important aspect. The factory at Optimus Projectiles concentrates all its focus and energy on producing ONE product – the Dyer HBC 155 grain projectile. Unlike the larger ammunition corporations, this business is not constantly changing tooling to accommodate different caliber and weight projectiles and is therefore able to retain exceptional attention to detail throughout the manufacturing process.
”What the shooters say...”
Hi David, I used the HBC 155’s last weekend and won VRA Australian state title.
Score 200.31 (HPS 200)
300 yards 50.8
500 yards 50.8
700 yards 50.6
900 yards 50.9
I now have plenty to keep me going with the last two HBC boxes of 500. I Will be shooting in Adelaide next week which is the last Queens and Australia cup for commonwealth games qualifying.
The following email responses are from shooters who use HBC 155 grain bullets. Including two of Australia's elite Full Bore competitors, Jim Bailey of NWSRA and Geoff Grenfell of VRA. Both have won numerous Queens medals and continue to represent Australia in International long range shooting competitions.
David, We had a 2 day shoot in Sydney in January in which on day two I had 150.30. 30 Vs from 30 shots, I haven't heard of that before. Not blowing my own trumpet, just letting you know. Apart from Bendigo next month, I'm doing the NQ Queens in May.
I shoot the Optimus HBC 155 grain .308 WIN projectile from a strong military type action and a 26 inch barrel. Loaded quite hot, the design of the Optimus HBC doesn't mean excessive chamber pressures, has only a small rifle bearing surface area and I can get 2940 ft/s from my 26 inch barrel and still be accurate and supersonic at 900m. The ballistics are comparable with almost double-the-price alternatives and I have always had good supply. The HBC presents very consistent out of the box, and in its down-range performance. I believe this is testimonial to coming from a single design factory. I hold the Optimus HBC in very high regard.
These are the best bullets I have ever used. Perfect design, perfect consistency with a higher BC than all competitors. I have used them to win Gold in the Europeans (Team GB). Bronze in the World Championships 2013 (Team GB). I came 12th in the World Championships individuals (Only 14 points off winning). And, achieved lots more wins in local UK competitions.
It ended up a pretty close run finish. I did use the HBC for the Queens. I have used the bergers as well,but I can't see any difference. I did an online interview for sporting shooter mag and gave the HBC a plug in there. www.sportingshootermag.com.au Mitchell is doing well, he's only 15, but he's shooting good solid A grade scores. We went to Bisley this year,where he shot as well. It was a great experience for him (and me).
Firstly is to let you know that I have been shooting those bullets I got off you last year with some good results. I have been able to get a few groups down either just under or just over the 2" mark at 500M and have shot a range of groups from a touch over 5" at 1000yd. A group shot at our first match this year at 1000yds and it went 6.5" and only because I was too slow to get the group away as the one shot out of group was the last shot and the condition got me :)
