I have done a little of that. What are you looking for LH?

I can say the Ballistic Tips are champs are retaining their little base compared other "varmint" bullets.

Tons of comparisons on YouTube. As far as Nosler base retention goes, I personally only want that for "hunting" game.

I would cast a vote for the Remington PLHP bullets as they are the only bullet I've spun to disintegration in a 1/7 twist 223 barrel.
They hold together in a 1/9 twist barrel and are devastating on critters.

The Speer TNT pretty much detonates when it impacts game. The pieces I’ve found aren’t much more than course sand. I haven’t seen them for a good bit though.
