Thread: what type of bullet are you all using?

  1. #1

    what type of bullet are you all using?

    Folks,

    Up until recently i've always used Sierra Gamekings. However i've recently moved and have been forced to experiment with a few others and am genuinely surprised by how different they shoot and how different the resultant deer carcass is.

    So, what are you all using and why ???

    .243 Federal Power Shok 100gr
    .308 Federal Power Shok 150gr

    I think Federal make the best Factory Ammo going,

    As and when I get hold of some Sako Ammo, I will compaire then, but for now, Federal.

    "Does what it says on the tin"

    I don't use enough Ammo to justify reloading yet.

    As above, 100 gr powershok, tried the sako and my rifle hated it, scatter the groups all over the place.

    Homeloads, never shot a factory round yet.

    A mate of mine says that his tikka t3 shoots tiny groups with the cheapy Norma stuff. He reckons its his tightest group. (243)

    I'm the same, Federal Powershok for any domestic deer stalking with my 270.

    Also use 150 grain Nosler Partitions (Federal Premium) for heavier stuff.

    Have used remington corelokt 100grain & hornaby 100grain BTSP interlock in my remmy 700 .243 & are accurate for the ranges that I shoot.

    i can't homeload for that , but i must say they printed quite well out of your 270
    i use hornaday 100grain btsp in 243 and hav just started using nosler solid base soft point in the 30-06
    both do the job well
    and accurate enough for me
