Re: 88Gr Berger 243 Varmint bullets

i have shot a lot of these . over 500 , i won the first 1k match i shot in with them. i used a stout load of I-4064. they shoot rea, real good out my rifle, less than .5" always. sometimes a lot less. i always use either i4064 or varget for accuracy. it is a hart 12 twist/ rem 700. i bet they would be good for game up to the size of coues.
