Guys, this will be practically ancient question, but... :)

My smith gave me few boxes of the old Barnes X 175gr flat base bullets (no bands on it). I like to try it with the Norma MRP-2. I already have sorted the bullets for base-to-ogive length - surprisingly accurate. The next step, I've checked the holes in the nose of the bullets, the good ones will go hunt, the others with imperfect holes will meet the paper targets during the load testing.
I expect velocities around 2900fps.
Any hunting experiences with this combo are very welcome. Thank you. My game will be european wildboars and red stags here.

First test done. Not bad, except those two kiddish mistakes by pulling the trigger. I'm too much used to my Jewells...
