I picked some 55 gr. Nosler Ballistic Tips up from a member here and worked up a load this morning. Man they shoot tight groups out of my Savage. I am guessing I am getting some 3750 fps out of my 22 inch barrel using a grain under max load of IMR 4895. I have shot some coyotes with this bullet in the past and it seemed to do a real fine job.
Yessir - they shoot like a laser! I've worked up some with H-4895 that are pushing 4000fps
! Turns that 243 into like a 22-250!! Bang-flop on yotes!
I ran some 58gr Hornady V-max too to compare; the V-max do nicely, but definitely much tighter groups with the 55Gr Nosler's. Using a Savage rifle too.
I really really really like the 55gr Noslers, but they do cost a bit more than the 58gr V-max - I try to stockpile the Noslers when they are on sale, etc
