Re: 250gr. match 338 hornady.

I think Hornady has modified this bullet? I just purchased two boxes (January, 2009) and the meplat has been rolled closed a bit. On other posts some shooters reported that the hollow point was rather large, this is not the case with the batch I bought.

For what its worth.

Just had a chance to try them out and was very happy with them. Got good group sizes and velocity ave of 2738fps with a load of 70grn of AR2209 (H4350) out of my .338 Win Mag - Sako with 24" tube. E.S. was 14.
