Are they generally accurate ?
My experience is Berger & Lapua bullets shoot great.

Speer bullets- haven't shot great for me - not bad but not great in 3 different calibers.
So what do you think about Norma ?
There's a good price on some advertised here- but don't want to buy 'decent' bullets.

I've shot factory loaded 165 Oryx from my 30-06 finding them accurate (easily into an inch for 3 shots.) Worked well on one whitetail doe at 100 yards.

Their 150-grain Whitetail factory load shoots well in several 30-06 and 308 rifles for me. Both loads likely use the same bullet.

Dunno about accurate. I can make any bullet un-accurate in a handload.

But in terms of consistency, both the Oryx (6.5mm and .308) and the BondStrike (6.5mm) are plenty consistent out of hunting rifles.

And no special magic sauce required to do so. Just follow the published load data.


It's you and the bullet, and all the rest is secondary.

They have [bleep] ok for me. I have not had the opportunity to shoot them lately. I found them to hold together quite well.


I prefer classic.

The 150gr .308 Whitetail load shoots well and its sibling 140gr 6.5CM load shoots great. Their Bondstrike loads shoot well in my 6.5 CM, .308 Win, and .30-06 (143, 180, 180). I have no ideas how they perform on game.
