Cast Bullet Accuracy Potential, 219 Savage
« on: July 31, 2020, 03:32:09 PM »
Took this fellow out to try some RCBS 30-150-FNGC bullets from Montana Bullet Works, using my standard charge of SR 4759, with these 100 yard results:



How does this performance compare with others’ results shooting cast bullets from a 219?

I have not reloaded for many years but I have long felt that the use of jacketed spire point bullets would be more accurate than the original round nose, soft point bullets made to shoot in the early rifles with magazine tubes.  I have a .30-30, .25-20, and .22 Hornet, and hope to try these jacketed bullets in all of them at some point in time.
