There are 2 185 grain jacketed bullet options at ZERO. How well do the rounder nosed segmented jackets shoot vs the “target truncated ones”?
Thanks!!!

Zero has the same two profiles in their .355 bullets. In the .355 they both shoot very well. In the .451 bullets, I have obtained the best results with the "-C" profile or truncated cone style bullets.

I was curious about that too. R185 has segmented hollow point nose vs R187 with non segmented hp. Assuming that the non segmented is the one folks are using. Maybe segmented is for B127 targets? ;-)

The #187  185gr JHP-C bullet is what has become known as the Conical nose bullet. It followed the #185 185gr JHP bullet. The #187 closely resembles the shape of the Nosler 185 JHP. Most find it more accurate.

It is my understanding that ZERO kept the #185 185gr JHP because it has better expansion, thus may be superior as a "defensive" bullet.

I ransomed both out of several wad and ball guns. Statistically I could see no difference in group sizes.

TZZ match brass, 4.5gr BE, Zero 185 JHP, WLP, taper crimped at .469.
