The projectile on that is from Berry's Manufacturing out of Utah. We have had terrific feedback on all of their products.

I'm glad you're happy with them!

Never heard of them. The charge makes it a pretty low performer.

IC the 6.0 grains of TightGroup is a Hodgdon book loading @ 1141 fps developing 34,300 psi with the Sierra 180JHC.
Here is a close up of the bullet, I find it interesting that HP cavity is deep @ HP Depth 0.3450”.  The outside of the nose has skives that also rundown into the interior of the Hollow Cavity like a TORX.  Infact a T-10 TORX will slide inside.

It would be nice if they were around 1250 fps, maybe if we all email Defender they will add another grain or two of powder. It's better than the PPU I tried, I don't even want to use that for plinking.
They attend a lot of gun shows, so maybe someone else can grab a box to try.

Looking at the data from Armscor and Freedom Munitions (6.4 and 5.4gr's) puts this in the center. It should give about 1125 FPS.
