    Talked to the people at Nosler about their 60gr ballistic tip and they spoke of an exit hole
    well as for animals that are shot would not want an exit hole, when shooting chucks or other
    varmints no stray objects flying away from a target no exit holes, TOTAL FRAGMINATION or
    explosive on target.
    Have only heard positive on the Vmax bullet both 55 and 60gr, the 60 would fly a little better
    than the 55's and the 60's were a lot cheaper at the time..........

    I have found my best load with the 60 V-max to be 25.5 gr. Varget and Rem SRBR primers. 2700 fps out of an M4. Very accurate. I developed the load using CCIBR primers and then tried the rems. They reduced the group size and almost eliminated the flyers. I have heard Federal Match primers are good also, but haven't tried them.
