Coyote but they get shot with whatever I have
I test all handgun loads & bullets on green fresh cut Douglas fir rounds…I shoot into the end then split logs to measure the penetration
it’s how I ended up loading Hornady XTP on damn near every caliber I shoot
but expansions is the key to XTP...
I believe the 255 kieth with a gas check is same or similar at 260 grains in weight blue dot is spectacular but only close to max loads it not one to perform well at starting loads
. Vehit n110 is very accurate with less blast than 296 or h110 but the Hodgdon powders are faster velocity by a...

I had a shot out 300 sav.
had a DOUGLAS bechrest contour 1 in 10 .257 barrel that didn’t get used for it’s original intention

Thank you for posting the extra data....but I was wondering WHY.? NOSLER 8....
Didn't have a 150 grain data...
Or why nosler inc. Chose not to load it..?
I loaded some up...I will post some results after I get a range day soon.
Maybe it's not a big deal in the real world ?
Just seemed odd to me...
Hogdon shows data for 7-08 & h335 from 100 gain all the way up to 162 grain bulles..
I used imr4350 & RE.17 in mine...4350 & 140 accubonds gave severel odd shaped clover leaf groups
In my opinion if I worked on it I think I could get the re17 to similar groups..
I just put together a 300 blk upper
Shocked to see nosler # 8 only shows data up to 140 grain?? Why I am wondering?
Seems to be very little difference in velocity between 125 gn vs 150 gn balistics tips
Everthing else bieng equal the 150 should work better on pigs or blacktail?
Am I missing...
