Experience with Nosler 185gr JHP Custom Competition bullets ?

Post by C.Perkins on Mon May 26, 2014 6:15 pm

Hello fellow shooters;

As some may know I took some time off of shooting the .45 and just recently made a trade on a Clark Sr. heavy long slide which I could not pass up.
More or less an excuse to get back into shooting the .45 again Smile

When I was shooting the .45 there was plenty of Zero 185gr JHP available, now not so much.
Are the Noslers  just as good +/- ?

I have been using 200 gr lead and dug out of my back room a box of Speer 185gr JHP at .4515" over 4.6gr Bullseye.
The pistol really liked that load, but they are expensive.

Found a place on line with really good price on 1000 bulk packs of the Nosler.
Also found Montana Gold 185's for just a tad more in price than the Noslers.

Any experience with the jacketed 185's would be appreciated.

They are at least as good if not better than the Noslers IMHO.  The Al Dorman/USMC load was with Noslers and 4.1-4.3 Of Vitavouri N310 if memory serves.  I think some of the better shooters use 4.3 -4.5 of Bullseye with the Nosler.

I've had my best groups out of the Ransom Rest with Noslers.

I shot a match tonight with the Noslers and 4.7 N310. My first target at 50 was a 96-4. If my hold were a bit tighter, it would have been a clean. The Noslers shoot very well.

The marines use to shoot noslers in all the matches before going to factory made ammo, very accurate, maybe better than zero even.
