I picked up 500 of these in 5 sealed factory boxes. Did anybody use these and develop any particular pet loads for them?

If there what I think, they shot well but had to be careful of bullet depth. They had a longer nose and less full dia bearing surface. So you couldn't seat them as deep as a Nosler/Zero

Greetings,

They are similar to the Remington Wad Cutter bullets.

I have had good results with 4.6 grains of 700-X.

Test target is 50 yards via Gold Cup Barrel in a mechanical fixture.

Cheers,

Dave

Hm, I picked up 2,000 or so Hornady 185s in a horse trade with a fellow of ill repute. I’ll have to look to see if these were those.

Edit: looks to be the same. 45137B, .451 185GR SWC TAR.

Mine were from a dealer in used loading components...but I’m sure the original purchaser was a bullseye shooter and we all know they’re pretty shady.

Well we have a datapoint for a load, above. Maybe we should share notes...

I think there was a thread on these not too long ago. Let’s see what my search-fu can turn up...

Wobbley, glad to see I’m not the only one with CRS.
