    Those are accurate bullets. I use them for varmints if I can't get any 110gr Hornady vmax's. Remember that's the maximum OAL. It really depends on your rifle as to what length would work best, but I generally try to stay a couple hundredths of an inch below OAL.

    This thread should be moved to the reloading section.
