Got some privvy 150gr soft points to try along with my normal Hornady 150gr interlocks.
Target was put out to 115m.
3 shot grouping woth Hornady
3 shot grouping with Privvy
As you can see not much between the 2 rounds. The privvy are seated a bit further out than the Hornadys and you do have to 'push' the bolt a bit to load them. I unloaded an unfired round and the head does touch the lands.
Difference in bullet seating depth
I then dug out one of the Privvy heads out of the bank to see what they were like, here was the result
I then tested them out to 180m and they still only dropped around 3" and all still grouped nicely.
So for a round that costs £10 for 20 compared to £22.50 for 20 for the Hornady I don't think they are that bad.
