I picked up 1K of the blems from Shooters Pro Shop a few years back. The Noslers don't have as deep a cannelure as the Hornady V Max. I seated per the Nosler on line manual. Ended up just about in the center of the cannelure. Slight taper crimp.

They are as accurate as the V Max. I was using H4198 and shot them from my Ruger American.

Keep us filled in.

I'm glad to see I'm not the only one to grab up some Z-Max bullets back in the day.

and yes, I know they are just V-Max with a green tip.
Bass Pro was clearing them out and I got the last boxes of .308 and .224 they had.

I think I have some Z max 223 factory ammo somewhere. Bought as stocking stuffers for the boys. Now I gotta go dig through ammo cabinets to satisfy my curiosity.
I have some Z-Max ammo in .223 & 12ga.
It's probably considered a collectible now... :LOL:
