Can’t wait to see how these work on game more than the one or two we know of now.
I’m having Kirby do a load with the 390gr in my 375AM when he gets them.
Also thinking of using them in my 30sherman just hoping they work on game well. Not so much with the .375 cause that’s a big hole but the 30 will need to expand especially at distance. The hammers will get me out a long way then I could switch to thewe but if they don’t open it wouldn’t matter.
Are you planning on hunting with these or just targets?

Actually a little less. I don’t have the measurements with me. I am at work now.
Pressure were at the same weights as the 195’s for me on these 2

I have to do more testing, including shooting into media before I commit to that.
I’ve had great performance from the 195’s in this cartridge I would need to see what results the ATips give.

Jeff Broz and Ryan Avery had some kills with the 30 caliber A Tips. Both concluded they were more explosive than Bergers and decided to switch back for hunting.

So Berger’s perform better for hunting?

I haven’t used them myself. But each one of those guys are well respected and took multiple deer and elk with 230 Atips.

Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1

The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
