    Norma 100grn softpoint

    My local gunshop only has these and Winchester supreme BT's in .243

    Has anyone used them on roe and how well did they perform?

    Thanks, Si

    I shot my first 200 or so deer with them 20 plus years ago and they seemed to work then! To be fair, that comment is hardly based on recent experience so not very relevant! JC

    Used to use them before I started reloading. Found them to be excellent; accurate and good controlled expansion. Bet their not cheap now!

    It's relevant enough JC.... from the dust on the box these are probably from the same batch

    27.99 a box Tom

    I don't think the price tag is the same vintage as the box! JC

    I'm using Federal 100g softnoses in my T3 .243; did the job for me on Monday......(I'll start the write-up for the 'Articles' section in a minute or two!)

    Use the Normas all the time, found them to be a very consistent bullet no variation between batches

    Do they stabilize ok in the 1:10 barrel?

    ....seem OK to me! 3-shots within an inch at 100yds is good enough for me.
