LD and VLD
Note About Our VLD and LD Bullet Prices
Have you ever been
scoring during a Highpower or F-Class match, or in the "off"
relay, and watched the wind conditions as they change? You probably
have.... and many times you have probably seen what happens as
the wind flags suddenly drop or maybe even do a quick reverse.
Just as the flags drop three or four shooters will let off a
shot. About 10 seconds later you can hear curses fly up and down
the line as their targets come up out of the pits showing spotters
in the 9 ring or maybe even the 8 ring on the upwind side (or
what USED to be the upwind side).
If you are
like me, you can't afford to drop any unnecessary points, even
one or two. In the highly competitive world of NRA Highpower
and F-Class shooting a point or two can make the difference beteween
winning or losing your Class.
We can't guarantee you that ANY bullet will keep you from dropping points due to wind.... but we can say with pretty good confidence that a more consistent bullet with a higher BC (and the BC's don't come any higher than the JLK VLD's) is going to buck the wind better and increase your chances for staying "Closer to the Middle"... and not costing you as many points due to unseen wind shifts.
all this got to do with our Bullet Prices???
Numerous times I've heard people complain that, "Swampy wants too much for his bullets", or "I can't afford those high dollar VLD bullets".
HUH!!??!! Come again???
bullets are a premium product. Any truly "premium"
item is going to cost a bit more than the mass produced items
from the Big Bullet Factories like "Brand S"
or "Brand H". It can't be helped.
JLK's Bullets are going to cost you a few cents to maybe even
a nickel a pop more than the bullets you are used to buying.
Dollar and Ten Cents. A buck and a dime. You can't even get a
hamburger for that anymore (When I was 16 I flipped burgers that
sold for 20 cents per... Cokes were a dime and fries were 15
cents. A meal of two burgers, fries, and a drink was only 65
just say that having the added wind bucking ability of JLK's
high BC VLD bullets has saved you only ONE POINT in a 22 round
match. In many of the events I've shot that one point can make
a difference in where you end up in the standings.
a moment..... Does it make sense to spend $800 to $1000+ on
a custom rifle action, $500 to install a custom barrel, $200+
on a custom trigger, $600 to $1000 on a custom stock, big bucks
for a top notch set of sights, more big bucks for glass and mounts....
then send it all off to a top notch 'smith.... pay him a good
amount of hard earned cash and wait many months for him to do
his best custom work on it so you can acquire a true CUSTOM precision
long range target or hunting rifle.......
Does a very expensive CUSTOM precision hand made rifle, made for a SERIOUSLY competitive precision shooter, not deserve the chance to show its best stuff by shooting the best CUSTOM precision hand made projectiles that can be had?
Beginning to get the picture with regard to "Bullet Economics 101"?
Maybe it should be "Bullet Economics $1.10"
Isn't an extra $1.10 investment in your ammo box when you lay down on the line worth the potential gain???
Lot's of shooters think so. We think YOU will too after you've tried your first box of JLK Bullets high BC VLD's.
Custom precision rifles and seriously competitve precision shooters deserve the best in true CUSTOM precision projectiles....
End of lesson..... "Bullet Economics $1.10"
