Hearing good things about these bullets but not sure if they will beat the 300 grainers.
Ray, I have not tried any of the CE bullets. But have the Barnes in the past. One thing I have come to learn over the years using some wildcats and standard Wby chamberings is, Higher velocity and solid copper always have resulted in more copper fouling. Some worse than others but for sure it will be accelerated with this combination, as well as accelerated throat wear.
These are some of the reasons I am standing by watching these bullets instead on jumping in. That, and I want to shoot beside them with similar chamberings in the wind before I draw any conclusions. So get some and lets go shoot again. Maybe we can find some wind and test em out in your rifle.
