    Anyone have experience with Nosler's .308 Custom Competition HPBT bullets at long range? They have them in 175 (BC .505), 190 (BC .535) and 220 (BC .690). Curious how they compare to Hornady and Sierra. I've used they 68, 77 and 115 gr Custom Comp bullets in .223 and 6.8 and have been pleased with their performance.

    I've used the 168gr and they worked ok. Went back to SMKs because they are usually easy to find. Only had the Nosler because someone picked them up for me during the O years.


    I'd probably not look to much at the 220gr. I tried to find a way to make 208gr Amax work out of my .308 with 1/10 twist and just couldn't push them fast enough to stabilize or gain any benefit from the higher BC even if they did.

    Thanks. I'd like to try the 175. I have a bulk box of the 168. I try to buy those bullets at Shooters Pro Shop when they have them on sale and 1000 count bulk box.

    The cc are extremely close to the smk of similar weight. Now the rdf is a complete different animal and a solid jump up in B.C.

    So how long does it take that 45-70 to get out to 1000 yrds.
