Does anyone know what these bullets may be? Brand and such?

The RN ones are 170gn .277.....................woodleigh maybe?

and the HP are 120gn .257. I have about 150 of these and would like to use them for more than target.

My first thought on the first bullets were heavy game solids, but .277"? Not exactly dangerous game bullets.
Second may be Hornady Game King.

the .277 ones are exposed lead RN

The .257 have huge + size/shaped holes in the HP tip. You can see the lead in there.
I think the sierra Game Kings are alot smaller in the tip.

Maybe i'll just shoot some waterjugs and see how they react.

Your .257" bullets are the Serria #1650 120 Gr. HPBT Game King. I use the .277 # 1835 140 HPBT and the .308 #2140 165 HPBT. They are accurate bullets.

You can get further excellent info on projectiles and other cartridge components from the folks on the IAA forum, see my signature for the link.

The 170 gr .277 look an awful lot like a Speer 170 RN that I bought about 35 years ago... I loaded a few of them, and still have the original yellow plastic box somewhere in the loading room, I will check when I get home.. I know I loaded about 10 or 20 of them, but never followed up on any serious load development with them.. But I would put money on finding them in the Speer Catalog.

I think Flight762 in in the x-ring with his call on the Serrias.
