    I restocked my reloading supplies today and for some reason The CT Ballistic Tips caught my eye in 30 cal. 150 grains and I am going to play with them in my 30-06. I was wondering if others have tried these and there results. Both accuracy and on game. Obviously there marketing is working, They had a fish on here.

    I've killed some deer and an antelope with the 150gr CTs in a 308 Win. None long range, but all very dead very quick. None exited and none recovered.

    My 7mm mag loves the 140gr and 150gr CT BT's I have taken several whitetails all DRT with heart/lung shots. Excellent accuracy too sub 1/2 MOA

    The 180's in 30 cal do a great job on dear,elk and bear (near and far)DRT but not so hot on close range coyotes.

    My "go to" bullet from .243 Catbird to .300 Jarrett. In 30 cal I shoot both the 150 and 168. Sighted in with the 150, the 168's don't require a scope adjustment as they shoot within 1/4 inch @ 250. Antelope, whitetail and muley with the 150 and elk, bear and moose with the 168.

    LOVE THEM. my 7 mag shoots clover groups at 100 yds, and alittle larger than 1 in. at 200. A myth is that they clog the bore, not true. I found that a bore snake with 2 pulls shows no signs of this after 10 shots. Enjoy.

    All I use in my 30-06 is the 168gr. It loves em and they do a number on whitetail. Two words: BLOOD TRAIL
