I've been reloading a few months now for my .243 using 100gn sierra game king heads with varying results. I've noticed that the soft noses on these rounds are very easily deformed and weren't particularly uniformed straight out of the box.
A friend reloaded some rounds for his .223 and got very similar groupings with the game kings as apposed to our usual half inch at 100 yard groups with A-max.
Realistically, I want a round that groups consistently with minimal meat damage but I'm reluctant to try things like V-max as I've heard they're messy and break up inside the animal.
Any shared experiences you have relating to this would be appreciated.
