    I bought a couple hundred of these projectiles to shoot in my 7.62x39mm bench gun. I haven't shot any yet but I'm very intrigued by this bullet's profile. It sorta looks like a little pistol cartridge:eek:
    I plan on loading them over a 27.8grn charge of n-120 that should be good for over 2800fps

    Any of you fella's shot these? if so how well did they preform?

    I'm intrigued. They look like they'd punch some pretty clean holes. The ballistic coefficient is .170, it may drop a little faster than you're used to. Please keep us posted.

    I shot a few of these today and even though I wasn't feeling on top of my benchrest game I still managed .5 MOA. You're correct thee things CUT very clean holes in the target.

    With 26.5 and 27.0 grain charges of N120 these thing were pushing 2800 and 2850 fps from my 26" bbl. I think that with a max load of 27.8grs 2900fps + will be very attainable. That's smokin for a 7.62x39
