I have had good luck with Nosler blems.I bought some 308 Hornady 150 grain SST blems and they are garbage.Discolored ,broken tips,weights are up to 10 grains off and shoot patterns in my rifle.In my opinion these should have been trashed rather than sold.Huntz

I agree. Blems that are sold to the public should have cosmetic, not functional blems.

In the 60's, Sierra had their factory about 15 miles east of Los Angles. On the street in front of the factory, they had a little old 2 bedroom house that was painted Sierra green that they used as their 2nds store. They were not called blems then. On the walls were 2x4 racks with with wooden bins with the bullets that were available, There were metal scopes and paper bags and you just filled the bags with the amount that you wanted. You could even mix the bullets in the same bag as every thing was 50 CENTS A POUND. There is a lot of 50gr 224 in a pound. I know a guy that has about 550lbs of 168gr 308 MK sitting in his garage. I ask his a couple yrs ago why he did not sell some of them and he said he might break out his NM M1 and go back into target shooting. He was 86 at the time. I called Berger a couple years ago about blems . With his nose up in the air the guy said that "BERGER DOSE NOT MAKE BLEMS" and I told him that my b*tt dose not stink also.

I bought several hundred 154 gr SST blems and they are almost identical to the first. The ONLY I could find wrong, outside of a few stains was the red tips were about 5-8 thousandths shorter than firsts. Weights of the blems were 153.6 to 154. I can tell no discernible difference in accuracy from the firsts..I will be buying more!!

As I have commented to this subject, on other locations. I think that most of the blems that are for sale are not blems but bullets that are not moving so the seller take them out of the boxes puts them in a plastic bag and drops the price a couple dollars and sells then as if the buyers are getting a great deal. The seller is only making $7 not $9 but they are gone.

Have you been to their factory which is now in Vandalia, MO? They have one area where they have their blems for sale and it is filled with 35(?) gallon drums, each one containing a different bullet type. You're not allowed to get your own any longer but an employee will get what you need. Some bullet types aren't priced all that cheaply, but you can find some deals depending on what you need.
