    zero different bullets

    Out today to punch some paper and the results were
    80gr Bergers 85gr Sierra Gamekings and 100 gr Hornady Interlocks all shot exactly the same
    My rifle is a Howa 1500 in .243 So I am well happy with those results,anyone else got similar.
    Thanks Brian

    My Blaser will do something similar, in fact I'd intended to shoot a target using 6 different bullet/load combinations and post it here to see what the comments would be. I'm not a great shot so it was never going to be a stellar target but I'll bet they are all close enough to make no difference.

    What you need to be careful of, however, is that that if you were shooting at 100 yards then they will almost certainly drift apart at longer ranges but I'm guessing you will be expecting that anyhow so it will not be news to you.
