So I finally ran out of my nosler 150BT's. I stocked up last year, and shot a few thousand of them. I just ordered a thousand more last week. Nosler number 30150. .308 150gr green ballistic tip. I just sat down to start loading... and noticed an extreme variation in length to ogive. I pulled down one of my old bullets so I could measure the differences and verified exactly what I feared. Old bullet: OAL - 1.216 Ogive - 0.576 New bullet: OAL - 1.206 Ogive - 0.592 This seems like a LOT of variation. My old batch of 5000 from various lots never had that much variation. What do you think, load to the same length to ogive that I used before? Seems that the bearing surface is quite a bit longer. I'm not running max pressures or anything so it shouldn't bother much... hopefully. Going to have to shoot them and see how they behave I guess. On another note, I swear that midwayusa intentionally pulls boxes from different lots just to screw with people. Out of 20 different boxes... I have 6 different lots, all with different length bullets.
