30 Herrett bullets?


Going to try the 30 Her on antelope this fall. had been using Hornady 30 cal 130 gr Single Shot bullets for deer and everything. Sad, they are no longer made.

need an easy opening bullet with a decent BC.

thoughts?

My first choice, would be 125gr BT (BC .366), I use them in 300blk, close to same velocity, as Herrett.

110gr barnes #30321 (BC .289) (black tip) or 120gr barnes #30320 (BC .358) are designed to open quick at low velocity and hold together a bit better. Nosler also makes 110gr varmint(varmageddon) bullet (BC .293) and 110gr e-tip (BC .245), copying barnes blacktip.

I've tried 110gr Hornady #3010, 130gr Hornady #3020 and they didn't want to group, their 110gr Vmax might be too fragile, but grouped OK.
