    A guy loads some Sierra Blitzking 70gr with 38gr of V133. They will do .5" all day if Ido my bit. I put them over a crono last week at Monmouth Tunnel range (cheers 8x57 ). They were consistanly doing 3335-3340 fps. That was through a t3 varmint with a JetZ on the front.

    Shot a fox the other week at 240m. I aimed a little high to allow for the range but it went through where I put the crosshairs. They are hard hitting and do what I want them to do.
