"I am really impressed with the 26 grain RBHP VLDs. I also like the 29 gr VLD flatbase. I do feel that the Gencos are very fine shooting bullets, Its clear that Mr. Gennett takes pride in his bullet making."

The man behind the bullets: Chappie Gennett.

"In 1971 H&R introduced a .17/223 on a Sako 461 action and some sort of 10 twist custom barrel. It was a ton of fun and shot pretty well. " groups at 100 yards werent bad for a .17 at that time. Many crows fell to that little rifle. I began looking for custom .17 bullets and shot many 22.5 grain Williams bullets, and an equal number of 20 grain Sisk bullets. Thus began my correspondence with Ted Smith.

In 1985, I began to build .17 bullets in earnest. I sold most to friends and people that wanted custom weights. From there we started doing what other people wanted. Calibers that we build included: .17, .224, .308, .25, .32, 9mm, .357, .40, .41, .44, .45, .348, 6.5mm."

I have been a competetive shooter all of my life. I have been selected the "All-American Skeet Team" two times. NC skeet "High Over-All State Champion" multiple times. 12 gauge champion, 20 gauge champion, .410 champion. Selected multiple times to the NC State Skeet Team. Sleeted tot he NC State Trap Team multiple times. NC State trap "High "High over-all Champion", 1988 World Champion Sporting Clays, Savannah GA.
