What to do with 230grn jacketed rainer bullets I have?


Recommended Posts

OK guys do not know if this is the right place to post, but here goes.

I have shot a few ICore local matches and have be using Doug Carden's,, 180grn jacketed rn Icore loads, very good ammo and good guy to deal with.

My question is I would like to reload my own practice loads. My problem is I have about 2000 rainer 230 grain jacketed hollow points that I would like to use up.

Any body have any ideas if this is feasable or is it to much of a stretch, that is POA would be to different.

Or should I just bite the bullet and get me some 180 grn Rn platted bullets.

Any suggestions would be appreciated and any load data would be very helpful.

Thanks in advance,

Load a few and see where they hit. If you need to move the sight just remember the number of clicks, or in my case I need to write it down. Bullets are like currency, you can always sell, trade or keep them for later.

I ran 1K of them with about 4 grains of clays IIRC when I first got my 625. Needed to make major. Everybody thought I was shooting factory defensive ammo at club matches. I didn't mind them since I got a good deal and they went in plenty fast. They were round enough nosed.
