I recently picked up some of the Nosler 64gr. Bonded bullets from SPS. Haven’t seen this bullet show up on this thread. Is it not a very good performer? I was hoping to use it for a doe antelope this fall in Wyoming!

I tried them in a couple guns and couldnt get the accuracy I was hoping for. Still they had good "hunting" accuracy so I shot a couple deer with them. They worked. In spades.

I have posted this before but the Nosler .64gr worked for me and shot well in this rifle.

LOL, had a great shooting hunting buddy who shot his truck hood 3 times while shooting at a target. He was some kind of miffed when the target showed no holes, and laughed like a madman when he noticed the hood. This with an old 74 F150.

Fastfire 111 on a Williams 5D sight base. Fastfire matched the Williams screw pattern. Works very well.

1st shot didn't hit the target, 2nd shot a small limb fell from about 10' above the target. I knew then something was phu.ucky.

Then I realized how low the barrel sat in my hand when leaning on the bed side.

Laughed about it. About all I could do.

Old spots caught a 75 BTHP Hornady on my evening stroll. Didn’t do him any good. [Linked Image from i.postimg.cc]

Use them frequently? I have been thinking about giving em a whirl.

I am using some 65 grain BTSP on hogs this weekend. I believe they are a Hornady bullet that Midway was selling in bulk.

I’ve probably killed 30-40 with them and honestly I’m not a fan. They’ve been erratic performance wise IME. I don’t care if they blow up or if they penetrate like crazy, I want them to do the same thing every time. If I know how they’re going to behave I can steer them accordingly but it’s a crapshoot as far as I can tell.

I’m thinking those 65s you got might be the ultimate cheap pig, deer, sick cow or whatever truck gun bullet. The 55s are so good the 62s and 65s almost have to be good. I need to scoop some up and try them.

Have 500 of the 62 btsp in my cart w Midsouth.

Midway has a 62 grain flat base w crimp ring too. Looks like a Hornady profile.
