Or should I just stick with the winning horse?
It never hurts to try a different bullet because different barrels like different bullets. But I wouldn't
spend a lot of time on then if you already have a good load unless they shoot as good as your
favorite load right out of the gate.
Don't be surprised if a "Better" bullet does not shot as well in your rifle. It just means that the barrel
doesn't like them.
