With Nosler 55gr SHOTS were awesome! With 15grs they have the same point of impact at 100 yds that our 100gr Nosler Partitions have, what a surprise. Grandson loved shooting them.

Thanks, Seafire!! Frankly, I could drop less powder. Didn't take Chrono with me, to much going on with 2 kids and 4 adults.

Fun shooting, but if you try shooting that bullet into some sort of media at that muzzle velocity
you might be surprised on how much it will penetrate thru...

its an effective keeping pests out of the garden type round....

in fact its pretty lethal on antelope sized deer here in Oregon, on blacktails.
