Thread: copper bullets - test loads

    copper bullets - test loads

    Tomorrow, I will be testing my new copper barnes bullets at the range with a range of powders.

    For anyone who uses them, how do you find the necessity to clean / foul between groups of shots?

    What is your routine and why do you think it is better than others?

    Cheers

    Clean as normal....

    In my experience if a bullet looks good.... it shoots good. Having said that 40 is usually 'good'
