Decided to make some small test batches of 6.5 Creed in 100 grain chocolate tipped Noslers using Norma 203-B and 120 grain using RE-17.

Another batch was 30/06 Norma 170 grain Tipstrikes using RE-17, Staball 6.5, and Norma URP.

Now just need to warm up a little to test them I have two each of 30/06 and 6.5 rifles to test them in so probably shoot 5 per rifle to see how they perform then when I choose my powder may tweak grain weight afterward. It's not a ladder test but more a bullet and powder velocity test, all are under max for now.

Those Nosler 120 grain Choc Tips won't disappoint you, they are awesome accurate bullets. I used them in my Creed with H4350.
I'm curious on the new StrikeTips, its a first I've heard about them. Hope to see good results.
