    Hi rid I had really good results with H380 less than 1/2 inch @ 100 meters , with the nosler 90 grain I can dig out the load data if needed you will need to work up the load mine was shot from a sako 85 regards jim

    My Sako shoots sub 0.25 MOA if I do my bit with 43gr H380 behind the 90gr NBT. This is with BR2 primers. As always, work the load up. H380 should be easy to get hold of as well.

ID:	49610The orange target is 3 shots with 100gr Sierra pro hunters with 41gr RL 17 at 100 yards, so not particularly relevant, but I haven't got any similar photos of the 90gr NBTs to hand. The Black target is 5 shots with 90gr NBT with 43 gr H380 at 200 yards, ignore the thumb.lol. Not quite 0.25MOA, but it was exceptionally windy at the time so I was trying to compensate. And yes, I did get an ear full for using a 600 yard target at 200, and rightly so.
