    Ive got 96 of Hornady FTX 160 gr projectiles, I thought my rifle didn't like them or maybe I purchased two boxes

    Open to offers.

    bush hunting light load......180grn hornady round nose with a couple of grains below max behind its arse....plenty heaps mild in the mighty BLR.... dont believe me??? buy a box of winchester 180grn power point....trust me you wont be dissapointed,the plurry things dont boot and kill like nothing else Ive seen. it was eye opening to me just how mild they are for a heavy projectile the recoil is more of a push than a boot. I have a few 125grn 30/30 pills here but my blr didnt like them....

    I've got a box of 100 Nosler 150gr BT soft point. Says 30cal (308) so not sure if that's 30/30. Was my old mans and he only reloaded for the 30/30 and 6.5mm
