Thought I would post this one, after reading dabob's thread on the 45gr Hornday lead free bullets. AND, for any speed freaks out there (besides me). lolIn the Jan-March, 2011 issue of Varmint Hunter Magazine, there is an article titled "Nosler Red Mist 2010". It is on page 188. One of the things I found interesting (me being a recovering speed junkie) was Nosler's 35gr Lead Free bullet being driven at 4500
fps from a 22-250. And what I found even more interesting was that Nosler Co actually reached "
velocities with SAFE pressures, but just settled on the 4500 fps. They stated they felt that "was plenty fast enough". WOW, now that is Blasphemy & an oxymoron to the MAX, in my (sick) mind. LOLPlug that "stuff" into a ballistics program and sight in at approx 1" high at 100 yards & the trajectory = -2" drop at 300 yards, -9" at 400 yards & -23" at 500 yards. Almost as good as the infamous 204
Yeah, I know, barrel life would be only about 100 rounds though (in the 250). LOL Frank
