Re: 40 grain VS 55 grain varmint bullets

Hi, I am new to LRS and had a question. I am having a 220 swift built and I am in the process of putting together some loads. Have you tried any of the Berger bullets out yet? I have 200 MEF 55 GRN MOLY'S and was woundering how they shoot. I will probably end up going with the 50 grn V-Max or 55 grn V-Max. I use the 50 grn V-Max for my .223 and they are very accurate and blow up the varmints very well. Thanks, Wildcat

The Bergers generally shoot very well. They will not be quite as explosive as the tipped bullets but accuracy levels should be up there with any bullet.

Let us know how the new rocket shots for you when you get it.
