I was given a box of old 160 grain Speer Boat Tails and loaded them up with Magpro. A good group was the result with a zero within 3/4 of an inch of my Bergers. I though the result to be interesting and bought a couple boxes of 165's for a 30-06. I got another group less than an inch using a near max load of IMR 4064 and set zero. I don't recall ever bechresting Speer bullets before in a long action though I may have. Has anyone ever shot live game with a Speer cup and core bullet? Weight retention about 60% would be perfect for stopping them fast. I may give them a try this year. With election year coming up deep stacking is in order, and the Speer bullets are relatively inexpensive.
