    Hi Hornet, use them for foxing in the CF2. 3420 ave. through the chrono and around 1" groups at 100yds. Just the job.

    All my 243 rifles have been fed with Sierra 75 grain HP heads - very very accurate bullet! A bit sharp on the back edge so a decent case mouth chamfer is advisable to assist entry. I think they buck the wind a bit better than the 60 grain version and still tramp along fast enough for normal UK varminting.
