    You'll be more than pleased. I just ordered another 500 yesterday to go with the 500 on the shelf.

    It's the only ballistic tipped bullet I've found that will shoot groups measuring 1/4 MOA at 300 yards.

    Not only a great target/match bullet but a devastating hunting bullet. Just ask the boar shown in the pictures in this article:

    .30 cal - Hornady A-Max


    The deer shown also dropped in their tracks according to the article. You won't get terminal performance like this from a SMK or other "Match" bullet.

    What is FDAC?

If I had access to that that would be the best method of testing handloads. You can lock the gun in a vice, and take all the external factors out like the wind, and trigger squeeze.

    As they say curiosity killed the cat. Glad I am not a cat, just a nube in this forum.
