Barnes 55gr RRLP range report

Went to the range today, one of the things I tested was the 55gr Barnes Reduced Ricochet Limited Penetration bullets I asked about the other day.

Tried them in 4 different loads from my "hunting"(vermin) upper.
Here's the best group of the day with them.

25.0 TAC, PPU case (Prvi Partizan), Fed 205 primer, bullet seated to the cannelure, and not crimped
That's 0.5gr below Barnes' published max load w/ TAC. I tried the max and accuracy wasn't as good.

Now to find a coyote/crow/groundhog to volunteer for a terminal performance test :tooth:

Edited to add: Was rather windy (15-20mph) today, and that's about an "average" group with other loads it likes.
