It would really help to know what your going to shoot and how far you expect the bullet to perform at, per its design intentions?

    Deer sized game, maybe coyotes. Probably 500 yards would be the max

    I was using AR-comp for those groups and numbers I told you about. I now use Reloader Power Pro 2000MR. Greater velocities and accuracy is outstanding. ES's are a little harder to nail down, but it works well with these weight bullets.
