i used hollow point and they didnt perform like i had hoped so i will be trying this next

I've tried a lot of hollow point rifle rounds and, when recovered, never seemed to "mushroom" like an HP should. My soft point rounds tend to rupture a bit more, although I have never used them in 7.62X39. I wish you luck in your trials and hope you'll let us know!

Box of my 150 grain "fusion" .270 claims over a foot of drop at 300' yards.

What scope do you have on your .270 and what make model is it?

the shots i take are as real as the firearms i own,, your more than welcome to come see just how far i score hits and guess GASP i didnt need a computer to tell me how to do it

i can also hit a 24" gong at 440 yards (1/4 mile) with every shot from my Stevens 416 .22lr thats 73 years old and i never clean the bore cause it shoots like **** when i do,, and yes this .22lr shoots one hole groups at 100 yards and thats suppose to be impossible with .22lr from a true 26" barrel but your welcome to come see that with your own eyes too,,, had a couple of guys from other forums come out for the free range time and to see that yes,,, people who shoot every day like i do get damn good at it,,, far better than what a computer or some instructor will tell ya

We get our SKS mags pinned for 5 rounds to hunt down here.

Lots of guys like the bayonet for standing off wild boar.


I'm very curious to see how accurately decent x39 ammo

shoots through a bolt action.
