    Has anyone tried these bullets? Ive been shooting the 69gr HVHP at about 3500fps. They are the most accurate bullets ive used. They are also deadly on game. Shot a zebra standing broadside at about 200yds and it fully penetrated exiting on the other side. It went about 10yds. The next one took a full frontal at about the same disance and dropped right there. Pretty impressive for a lil 69gr bullet. Im constantly shooting 10mm groups at 100 and ive shot a 7mm group at 225. All this out of a howa 1500.

    I use 43.5gr of Somchems S365, a South African powder which is about the same as your imr4350. I use remington brass. Im still a student, so i cant afford the good stuff.
