What's this bullet's velocity operating range? I'm mainly interested in low end since my load has them shooting accurately at 1320 fps. Will be hunting deer with them.

Thanks, Dinny

Remington brand? I think you will be just fine Dinny! I find them to be softer than Speer 400's.

Yes they are Remington brand. I'm trying to find a place nearby where I can shoot them into my bullet box. That test will tell all.

Thanks, Dinny

i've shot them into wet newsprint at impact velocity 1900 fps, the rem 405 will hold together and literally turn inside out getting as large as a 50 cent piece....huge wound cavity and 19 inches of penetration. at the velocity you mention, it will provide a very nice mushroom and will completely penetrate game. i think its an awesome killing bullet. fast or slow it works.

they work well at a 1000-1400 fps. probably my favorite 4570 jacketed bullet. They make a good varmit bullet for a 458 mag at 2200 too!!

I've been running them in my 458 at about 1800 fps. Good expansion, and line of sight penetration 30 inches plus. I haven't recovered one yet. :eek:
