Well, we will see how these run in a 17VHA.
I now have three different solids, no HP, no lead, just straight Cu with a point. Accuracy with the 17gr at the top has been the best, the 19gr drills targets as large as boar and I haven't recovered any of these from game.

The 25gr at the bottom here has a long history I suspect going back to the Army BRL as I found some examples of it loaded in a necked down 5.56x45mm case at Frankford Arsenal.

Bill K,

Yep those Lehigh Defense 18 and 20gr hp fb lathe turned bullets perform quite well.
