    64gr win power point .224 swap for 50-55 grainers

    About 70 of, not happy in my rifle, might be better with a quicker twist? Tough little projectile

    Did you get to use them on smaller deer at all?

    I have some 55 grain blitz Kings if they would be of any use
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone

    I've made an offer to Timmay via pm as he got in first, but if he's not keen, I am open to swaps.

    Puku - I would be keen on the blitz kings if Timmay doesn't want the 64s.

    Was in a 1:12 weatherby. Wasn't that they didn't stabilise as such, just didn't shoot as tight as I would have liked.
