Hot Products You May Not Know About:
X-ray Your Bullets?
One of the best kept secrets is how those guys manage to shoot under 6 inch groups at 1,000. A product invented by Vern Juenke doesn't actually x-ray your bullets but it seems to. The Internal Concentricity Comparator (I.C.C.) detects concentricity problems caused by jacket irregularities. One past International Heavy Rifle Champion says it is the secret to shooting under 6 inch groups at 1000 yards. If you do everything else correctly, and still can't tighten your on target groups, it may be your bullets. Weighing bullets can not tell you if a box was made with jackets that are thin on one side and thick on the opposite side. Once a bullet leaves the barrel it will always stabilize on the center of mass. If bullet jacket thickness varies within a box, the bullets will stabilize at a different distance from the muzzle and "wobble" to a different point of impact.
Top competitors with an I.C.C. may use only 25% of a box for serious work. The ratio of good bullets often depends on the number of jacket stamping die sets in a production line and when they are replaced due to wear. Some of the best bullets for long range shooting are produced on small lines with a single jacket stamping die set so if there is variation in a box, they are similar.
Vern had threatened to retire several times and apparently has finally stopped making them. We thank him for his important contribution to long range shooting. Others are now producing kits or finished meters to keep this important product available. Check www.bulletinspector.com or www.bulletdoctor.com for price and availability.
