   I shared the data with Reed's and they're sending replacement 155 and 200's. Let's see what they give!

I received the new 200gr Hardcast today. Hopeful for 1200 FPS velocity.

Haven't been out to try them yet. I had two family deaths, Christmas, New Years and then a Polar Vortex. I hope 2018 goes better and I get to the range more!

Ugh. I just bought some 180 Gold Dots from them based on the rave reviews. Price of the Ammo was good but shipping was a beast.

Put them to basically at $1 per round.

Following this one for sure.
