Anyone try the Premier 33grain V-Max by Remington? I bought a box to try but am having trouble site-ing in my rifle. Just wondered if there is enough velocity to open up that tip. Seems everyone really likes the CCI's
I tried them and I love them. I shot a rabbit with them the other day, Not a goog round if you like to eat rabbit. It was around 60 yards and never came out kind of felt like jello. Acuracy wise with my marlin I can keep five of them in a dime at 70 yards. I cant wait for spring so I can try'em out on some woodchucks. To bad they are ten bucks a box.
i have been using them in my marlin and are very accurate up to 100 yards....i have shot well over 50 fox this year..and it puts them down hard with no fur damageat all..a little hole in and a little hole out...destroys the inside of themm...if the fox do run they dont make it but a couple of yards...lol
One guy says good expansion on rabbits, no exit wound, another guy says "a little hole in, a little hole out" on foxes. Two different storied here. A little hole in and a little hole out would imply NO EXPANSION AT ALL! A full metal jacket can accomplish that. How would it destroy the inside of an animal and then make a small exit wound? That is better than the magic bullet theory in the Kennedy investigation.
At TEN bucks a box...I think I will wait till I hear more conclusive reports. The first one sounded excellent...unless you like to eat rabbits.
