Re: What's your favorite bullet weight, in .224?
I have been using 50 gr. Nosler Ballistic Tips almost exclusively in my Weatherby Vanguard varmint special, with excellent results. Also the 50 gr Ballistic Silvertip, But, lately I came across a bunch of Hornady 53 gr. V-Max, and must say, they are VERY awesome as well.... Preliminary testing is good. And I believe with a little tweaking they will shoot every bit as well, if not better than the NBT.... Although, if i can shoot .221" ish groups at 100 yards with either, how much better can it get?
The thing is, I got the 53 gr. V-Max's for alot cheaper then the Nosler, and I figure the little extra weight can't hurt when going for 'yotes.....
