    Tried some of these this morning.

    Velocity was only 10 fps faster than average. Atomospherics imo. Very low pressure.
    Shot as good if not better than the Amax group wise, but POI was over 1.5 inches left and half an inch lower.
    Pretty happy with that as they are seated to my short mag length and thought they might be fussy.

    Haven't got time to muck around re-zeroing so I will be using my other projectiles up before I bother using these this winter.

    I'm feeling pretty confident they'll shoot as good as Amax's in my swede. @gimp what powder are you changing to?
