I was waiting for dad to post it up but maybe he's waiting on me
Annealing made a significant improvement with the bullets opening in the first jug then hashing the second and the mushroomed bullet ending in the third at 100+gr. I think his impact velocity was around 1830fps at the lowest running a .680 bc at 2860fps. To me it looked like it would do rude things to the insides of an elk chest
I'm going to have to put in a big order for some more 160's and I need to find some more brass so I can get a good run of one load to get some serious shooting done, I'm about done screwing around and am ready to take it out to ranges that are more intersting in preperation for hunting season and get the ballistics nailed down tight.
