    well im using 85grain hollow points and 85 grain speer soft points,35.5 grains of varget cci primer in federal brass.
    both grouping 0.5" at 100yards,i found that using 100grain heads tend to be just a little to much for my howa,these are very flat and at 200 yards on both heads there is a drop of about an inch.not tried them at 300 yet but will do one day just to see what they do
