Post by rebs on Mon Jan 22, 2018 10:39 am

It seems most guys favor the old Remington's, what is the next best wc's for reloading  and accuracy ?

I had good success with Precision Delta, it was the most accurate out of all bullets I tried (except Remington), but it leaves a lot of lead in my model 52 barrel, so I stopped using it and switched to Remington, now my barrel is very clean, but I'm still tuning my load for better accuracy.

Remington for the long and short line.
Remington for the long line and Speer or Hornady for the short line.

Just my experience.

Remington's are no longer available ,
Zeros tend to lead 
The .358 hornadys with the graphite lube are better .

I just received 2,000 Remington's from Midway. Forgot I had even back-ordered them.

Rather heavy lube on them.

Which is one reason they shoot great.

Just received my case of 2000 Remington bullets this morning. Sadly, I have a strong feeling this is the last one, there will be no more. Oh well...

PD uses 2 kinds of lube on the 148's. Be sure to order the bullets w/ match lube, $4 or $5 more but not nearly as messy!
