    Hi, I use only - Hornady red tip or blue tip in my savage BTVS & it does not matter! rabbits don't feel a thing!

    Whats the difference between the red and the blue tips apart from colour.

    nothing, in fact all HMR ammo comes from the same place, just uses different brass and packaging for marketing purposes.

    buy as many in one batch as possible IMO
    lot to lot variance in this ammo can mean the difference between a hit and a miss (or worse if you read the numerous "squib" stories!)
