The crimped or swaged band around the actual bullet was the giveaway. Some were seated right up to it, others it looked about half exposed, and some of them looked to be seated passed it. It was also very faint on some of the rounds, and the grooves in the jacket at the tip were very inconsistent. The first box I shot didn't even have the grooves in the tip, but neither were accurate. Either way, all I had was a box of the 80 grain loads and the 100's. The 80 grain load was awesome as usual. I took my wife out to shoot that day, and they were still minute of soda can, so they got used, lol. I thought about calling Winchester and sending pictures, but once I used them all it was moot.
On the other hand, I tried the inexpensive Perfecta cartridges today and I feel that they performed above the price point.

Good common sense is not synonymous with proper grammar and spelling. If these are your main points of contention, you don't have a leg to stand on.
