This is what the finished batch looks like . They don't handle wind as well as a heavier better BC bullet but upto 500 meters they do ok.
Not the perfect long range design I know but rebated boat tail bullets are out of my financial reach at the moment as the die sets cost so much and there is other more important things I need .
I am not an expert on scopes so my knowledge is limited to what I can afford to own. However I have done a lot of research and I personally feel that the Vortex Pst scope is a better scope in general to a Sightron and the Vortex Razor much better . I know many will disagree but I based my opinion on research , what others said and inspecting both scopes at my range . I like the mil radian reticule in the Vortex , the zero stop and the optics seemed better to my eyes than the Sightrons I have seen.
The Vortex seems to tick all the boxes I need so thats all I can go on .
Nice looking wee bullets. You should try get in contact with the guy from Targex in NZ. He makes alot of nice projectiles and might have some old gear/good deals for you???? He sells alot of stuff on trade me(15x .243/6mm" TARGEX SAMPLE PACKS | Trade Me
) or you can email him at firstname.lastname@example.org
.. His names Bryn Ive used his 95gn rebaited boat tails in my .243 and they were really nice.
Thanks for the opnion on Vortex. Ive never really heard of them untill now. will try get hold of some at a shop and have a play with them.
