First time ever that I have taken bullets out of a box and they all weighed the exact same 165.2grs for 42 of the fifty in the box and the extreme spread was .4 WOW!!!! Now I don't know it they will shoot well or not, but they sure are off to a good start. I needed a 165gr load that was an all around load being able to open quickly without the front of the bullet fragmenting, creating a good mushroom for a good size meplat and a shank that would not break apart on bone while continuing in a strait line like the TBBC but being inherently more accurate.
This would allow me a load that would work on deer to elk and moose, without jockeying around with different bullets and loads as well as different impact zones, having to sight in each time I changed loads. The bullets I am trying and that weighed so phenomenally well, are 165gr SS North Fork bullets. I will be using the load data that North Fork sent me for my 300Win Mag and also the OAL they told me to use as my base to work from. Then I weighed the completed cartridges I loaded and the spread in cartridge weight was .5 - I will see next Monday morning how they shoot. Work has me tied up until then. Can't wait to see how they do.
