Federal claims these are the same bullets [sorry for poor pic quality]. In 2012 I started hunting deer with a 243 and bought what I thought was 100gr Nosler Partitions [two bullets on outside], I was running low this year so went and bought 2 more boxes marked exactly the same as my 2012 rounds. Imagine my surprise when I was out in the bush to discover that the new bullets appeared very different from the ones my gun was sighted in for. My question is, do you have a best guess at what the outside bullets are, I am pretty sure the center one is an actual partition.
Oh ya, Federal says it's because they are putting a moly coating on it and I am just too stupid to be able to see the difference. [I added that in but that is about what it comes out as]
