Thank you! Good news, I did a little more research before I ordered the Timney and discovered that others were saying what you have said. I ordered a Jewell from Larry Scott yesterday
I figured I should probably switch to the 180's. As soon as I can find some 180 hybrids in stock I'll be buying some. They should be better against the wind to, which around here, seems like it ALWAYS blows 20mph. I've be hesitant to do so to this point simply because I despise load development and it's a capable 1 hole gun with the 162's. Hindsight if I would have known Hornady was going to stop producing them, I would have switched a long time ago. Thanks for the good advice and comments!
