    Selling some of remaining Nosler 30 Caliber .308 Diameter 168 Boat Tail HP Custom Competition bullets as I have switched to 175GRs. My REM700 5R with 11:25 twist rate "likes" 175GRs much more.

    I have 1,300 left and would sell all at once for $285 shipped or at $22 per hundred plus USPS Flat box rate shipping.

    I could ship up to 500 bullets in a small box for $6 with receipt confirmation.

    I am using 43grs of Varget with LC LR & CCI LR primers. Groups consistently at .5 (100y) or less if I am doing my job. 175s are the same Nosler's Custom Comp.

    In the past I have used Hornady 168s (and had good results also) but switched to 168 Nosler as they have less sharp angle of bullet nose (it makes frong part of the bullet fatter and ogive more torward front part of the bullet), which allowed me to have very little (~.01") bullet jump and still keep overall length reasonable. I just got from my frient a bunch of Nosler 175s and do not need that many 168s.
