ARES bullets, US source?
 
Anybody know of a US importer of ARES bullets?

These: ARES

They're certainly colorful. I'm curious about them, but wouldn't go out of my way to find them. However, if I saw a box, I'd probably pick it up for grins.

Supposed to be very clean, and provide a 7-10% increase in velocity
with no there changes. Also from what I read they are one of the
cheaper bullets in Europe. Would like to give them a try for USPSA
loads---reduce the load and still make power factor.

And yes---especially the purple ones (for small dinosaurs, you know which
one) kind of make me grin.

Clean or not I am not putting a bullet in them GHAY azz colors in my gun.

I bet your go "Oh Snap girlfriend" when you shoot them.


Beside the GHAY azz colors. I am not putting a PAINTED bullet in my bore. Sorry unless it is a ceramic coating it is going to leave crap in the barrel I bet even more than a jacketed or cast lead boolit.

How does it feel to be a legend in your own mind?

cpttango30 12-06-2009 11:46 PM

It feels really good.

What's your point.....

I believe they are polymer coated with moly added for lubrication. Besides, it seems the Cpt seems to know a bit about the alternative lifestyle speak as it were. :rolleyes:

LOL! I mis-read that as GRAY and thought you had an aversion to MOLY coated bullets tango. :D

Not your usual spelling of "ghey". ;)

cpttango30 12-07-2009 06:02 PM

Sorry

The Ghay color comment was meant as a joke. My bad.....

polymer coated would not be my first choice for coating a a bullet. I just don't see how they are cleaner than a copper jacketed bullet or a hard cast bullet. That stuff has to come off in the barrel and will normal solvents like sweets or Hoppes get it out of the bore? I wouldn't think so......








PS I still think they are GHAY

I do there is nothing to prove it works and nothing to prove it does anything. It dose how ever add to the diameter of the bullet causing higher pressures (or some I have been told by some bench rest guys).
