Try having a Rifle that only likes certain ammo to eat!
I USED to use, (Key words USED TOO) Federal 70 grn ballistic tips out of my 243, Until Federal hiked the prices sky high....Dang near 40 bucks a box Everywhere I've looked at them!
Hornady works just as good if not better then the Federals...
IF my 243 would eat Remington Ammo and Spit them out in NICE GROUPS instead of throwing them all over the place, I'd use the $15.00 box of Remington ammo...but my rifle doesn't like any remington ammo I've shot thru it and only seems to hold nice groups with Federal, Hornady and Winchester....I had a Bad Experiance with Winchester Silver tiped ballistic tips and have stayed away from them since then and stuck with hornady and Federal...now it is just hornady and if their prices go thru the roof like Federal did, I may just have to look for another Rifle that will eat Remington Ammo and Spit it out in Nice Groups!
