    Curious if anyone has tried any of the bullets offered on the site. BCs are pretty decent on paper and profile is good. THey have:
    308- 168, 178, 190, 200, 212, 220 in Match hunter and match target
    284- 162, 175, 180 in Match hunter and match target
    264-120, 123, 140, 143, 147 in Match hunter and match target
    243/6mm- 103, 105, 108 in Match hunter and match target

    I ordered a few to try out but was curious if I was the only ginny pig.

    I've tried the .264 in 140 gr. Very similar to the Hornady 140 ELDM

    usually midsouth sells them unbranded as match and hunter--but IIRC they are hornady blems from eldm, and eld-x

    they can be just like new eld's as "blem" can mean just a discoloration--BUT my buddy got some that the weight was +- a few grains, and some that were just a little too small in diameter, so if you buy them, check them for weight, and diameter and sort accordingly

    I have bought and used Nosler blems in the past with good results. They claim that the "blems" are 100% except for the blemish. My concern is that of all the boxes I bought I never saw a single blemish on any bullet. I have always wondered about this.

    I would not hunt with a blem but they seem good for working up loads.
