    i bought some to try. In my ruger 77 m2 they grouped at about 4" at 100 yards. At the price the're worth a buy of 20 to try

    in their original case they mostly go bang and are a bit rubbish grouping roughly within a dsc1 target, but take powder and bullet and put it in a nice shiny brass case checking the charge weights and at least they look good before they still group like a sneeze....

    the bullets are a bit shocking compared to decent gear but if you want to plink it's the right price

    using them against plates,up to 600 yrds or so, they shot very well from my AUG (62grns) and at 18.50x100 last time I bought them they were ideal for a 200+round day
    on the range at 600 they hit the black, at 100m the group was about 2" which is more a product of the military trigger and my impatience

    Where are you getting them from? Do they do a 308 load?

    I am just so leery about shooting copper plated steel jacket bullets from my rifles.

    Yes indeed, 35/100 from HPS. I bought some today to use for the first few shots when zeroing a rifle with a new scope.

    It costs me 94/100 to reload 308 with a decent bullet, so I thought I'd try some. I've heard good reports of the 223 so far. Obviously those who promote and sell the more expensive stuff will try to tell you that it will ruin your rifle, has corrosive primers (not true) etc.

    No experience with Barnaul.

    But GGG is decent stuff, boxer primed re-usable brass, copper jacket bullets. .223 and .308.

    I paid 40/100 for .308, seems fair enough.

    Cheers for the info, the bloke who sells them he wants 6 quid for a box of 20 so that's pretty cheap
