Dime Sized GroupsReview by Ethan W. / (Posted on 11/28/2016)I have not had a more accurate round than your silver tip for reloading. You made it easy to start with your all your data on the web for free. My AR with 55 grain Ballistic Silvertips shoots dime sized groups at 100 yards I just want to thank you for that.
VihtaVuori and the Ballistic Silvertip 22 Caliber 55 Grain BulletReview by ABQ_Hatrick / (Posted on 5/27/2015)I shoot a CZ 550 550 Varmint is fitted with a 25.5″ heavy barrel and fitted with a Grey Laminate stock and a Red fiels AO 4X24 target scope, bringing the rifles total weight to 11.5lbs. I started my hand load with the Nosler Ballistic Silvertip 22 Caliber 50 Grain Bullet, RP once fired cases, Fed Primers, Vihtavuori N140. I only knew Vihtavuori from reputation and the Nosler Ballistic Silvertip Bullet coated in Lubalux. (CTBST) from what I read.
Starting at the min load I worked up a load starting at .5 grn increments. After shooting and documenting. I found my best groups around .25" The third round I went up and down at .01 grn increments. I found none of my hand load groups were greater than .25". The smallest groups being in the .10" range. Once I had a grouping of .10 I worked on the OAL.
All primers were inspected for pressure deformation. I worked up a hand load that was in the .30" groups at 200 yards. My Chronograph is measuring 4100FPS Avg. +- 30fps.
I have done a lot of reloading, I have had nothing but Outstanding performance from this Bullet in 22 cal and .30 cal. I Recommend it if your looking to hand load Varmint rounds. Beside being insanely accurate. This bullet is devastating when varmint hunting. If your pelt hunting DO NOT USE. The exit wound on a jack rabbit at 200 yards, Vaporized the rabbits rib cage and front leg on the exit side. It was devastating bullet wound. Keep that in mind when planning hunting with it.
