Re: Precision Hand Loading For Long Range-Chapter Two: Bullet Prep By Tres MonCeret
The problem with them is that they are often notorious for tumbling as their velocity nears or goes transonic & subsonic.
Secondly, there are bullets just a wee bit heavier than the old 168 that are much more aerodynamic, thus carrying velocity & energy and wind bucking ability better, and further down range. They shoot flatter. To me it's like hanging onto antique .22 rimfire "long" loads, when technology has given us the "Long Rifle" load which is better overall, at the same cost of the former.
Happy to help,
