Nosler® Ballistic Tip® Varmint Bullets
After shooting Ballistic Tips for years in my deer rifle with great success, I had to try these varmint bullets. My Remington 700 SPS Varmint rifle showed promise with factory ammo, but I knew some good .223 handloads using the 55gr NBT bullets should deliver the accuracy I knew the rifle was capable of. I was not to be let down. After working up a load using H-4895 I am getting 3200fps and 1/2" five shot groups at 100 yds. The boattail design mekes for easy loading. The polymer tip allows explosive performance out past 300yds. I'm sold on these bullets.

I have used Ballistic tip bullets for my rem, 222 and my Rem 244. I like the characteristics of these Bullets. They preform excellent on Varmints and deer . I shot these at Prarie Dogs and they were great. . In Coyotes they do there job well. most of the time they never leave the animal. But the damage they cause internal is deadly. A great Bullet for what they are designed for. I recomend them to all Varmint hunters for sure.

I have used other brands because they were less expensive but I always return to the Nosler® Ballistic Tip® Varmint Bullets
The other brands just do not have the terminal effect on the prairie dogs that these bullets have. Even at extreme range 400+ yards they are devastating. They create a cavaity rather than a hole in the target. They are well worth the extra few pennies.

coyote head shot at 80 yards
Shot a coyote right between the eyes at 80 yards with this bullet. I will never give out my load data, but I will say if you find a great load, dont change. You will wish you had not. I was going to change the powder but decided to try it anyway because it was a hot load. Coyote just dropped dead.
