I was gonna do a poll but there's just too many Laughing . Who's your favorite. I have pretty much settled in with Nosler for the last 15 years or so, for Varmit size the Balistic Tip and for Deer size game the Accubond or Partition. I have had great results with these bullets ( both accuracy and performance ) and they have never gave me a reason to change. I'm not saying there better than the rest just that they have worked well for me. What do you like ?
Joe

For PD's and coyotes I use Hornady v-maxes. For big game I use Sierra Prohunters. Both brands have served me well thru the years.-tr Very Happy Very Happy

I started off using mostly Speer but now seem to be using slightly more Hornady. There are some Sierra, Nosler and Barnes on the bench too. For cast bullets I was using Valiant, from AL, but he seems to have disappeared here and I'm looking for other sources.

I've ben-a-thinkin' on this one fer a spell Confused and every time I keep coming up with the same answer. It ain't my favorite bullets, It's my guns' favorite bullets. Them ole guns are picky critters and I keep loading different ones till I make the ole guns happy. That usually makes me happy too. Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

Aw, c'mon Bushy....ya gun is like a good mate, and ya like to have ya mates happy don't ya?

I load Remington 80gn PSP in my 243, Winchester 150gn PPFN in my 30.30 and used Winchester Power Point .22 in all my rimfires but one, and Remington Sub Sonics in the other.

The Remington PSP and Winchester PPFN are more than adequate for the game I hunt over here in Oz.

Cheers, Vince

I tried some 180gr triple shocks in the 308 Norma Mag before sold it they were pretty accurate. Didn't get to try them on deer though Sad . I still have some I could load some up for the .308 180gr is heavier than what I use for deer but I could see how they do in the 788 Very Happy

150's in a .308 Winchester.....ROCK.

The beauty of driving TSX's is the light for caliber aspect...light/fast.

Couple that with near 100% weight retention and you have a win/win.

X's are an awsome hammer...........
