Tungsten Core Bullets?

Those bullets have been around for years now. Some have tried them at great expense. They didn't really shoot any better than the lead core bullets already being produced so the BR shooters quit using them. Yea great BC but if they aren't more accurate it won't cut it in today competitions. It's my understanding that PRL ( the original company near Oak Ridge, TN) now has many contracts with the goverment for pistol type bullets of the same concept and doesn't produce many of the rifle bullets anymore. The original concept was that they disinegrate(sp?) on contact for indoor shooting ranges and crowd control.

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
