Nosler Custom Competition Bullets - Hands on Review
The good stuff: After a little tweaking, both the155 and 168 varieties did just that. Turns out, these are a good budget bullet for the shooter with tight purse strings.
The bad stuff: It is definitely a bargain bin looking bullet. Most of the 250 bullets in each box had very noticeable discoloration and blemishing, though it seemed to be purely cosmetic. Not the end of the world, but still something that bears noting. I haven't fiddled around enough to completely wring all the accuracy out of them, but I get a feeling there's going to be swiftly diminishing returns at around .4moa.
Overall: Bargain bullet, good accuracy for the price. Definately some clear limitations, but I can live with it. It will slam a steel target or a paint can from 500 yards, and that's all I really need from them at this point.
