Jacketed hollow points - which ones?

Post by Chris_D on Fri Mar 09, 2012 9:06 am

Hi guys, yesterday I was ordering some more bullets from Zero (Rose Dist.). I got my usual 200 grain and 185 grain hollow points. I was about to buy some jacketed hollow points to try for the long line but wasn't sure which ones to get. They had 230 and 185 grain. For some reason I thought that the "standard" was 200 grain.

I know the popular brand is nosler but also heard that the zero brand is just as good. Frankly I am not biased to either brand but just want to make sure I get the right weight. Summer is almost here and I hope to get some testing done on these before the tournaments start.

185 JHP's from Zero work very well for the long line Chris.

185 is the standard for bullseye in a FMJ, nosler, zero, hornady all shoot very accurately.

You can find the Nosler 185 periodically on the 2nd web site also.

Have you looked at Montana Gold. They are my preferred jacketed bullet
source.



They make a 185gn JHP and a 200gn JFN, both excellent. They
are available and, I believe, less expensive than from Roze. Buy 3 or more
cases. You can never have too many.


PS: I also prefer to buy my Zero bullets from Powder Valley
as them have tended to try and keep the price down.
