Thinking about tyring some of the 60gr Nosler ballistic tip bullets for RAP .223, shoots 69gr STMK quite well and i use this round on foxes, never had one run when hit, however Sierra state this is not techncially a hunting round, not sure about that as it has a nylon ballistic tip like many "hunting" rounds, so not sure if this is more marketing hype by Sierra to get people to by 2 different types of bullet ! Anyhow looking at the Nosler load data it doesn't show N140 and the Viht load data does not have th 60gr Nosler bullets....
so is anyone using this combination ? if so what was your starting loads ? the Viht data has loads for a Berger Varmint bullet starting at 23.9gr so perhaps was thinking of starting there
