I love the partition rifle bullets and have used them for 30 years or more. They are deadly 1 shot kill bullets. Just recently bought 1000 bulk pack 185 gr .45 ACP HP for target and hunting. Love them all. I have my son shooting the 300 Win in 180 gr protected point partitions. I load 38/357 Cal pistol loads also. They are very accurate and deadly. You have a great job.
I have been a user of Nosler products for better part of 30 yrs's. Best & most reliable hunting bullet made for anything in North America. Shot the std solid bases before the ballisitic tip, shot literally 1000's of BT's on every thing from pd's to coyotes and whitetail deer. The Partition is the gold std for big game.
However I noted that when Nosler went to from 100ct to 50ct boxes in 90% of rifle calibers, the pricing structure did not reflect the decrease in bullet count proportionatly. But the box got really purty. This began to occur in the mid 90's and I saw it coming. Needless to say I am still shooting my stash of red label Nosler ballisitic tips.
Unfortunatly, the metals market, the slick marketing strategy has all but priced me out of buying Noslers (first run Noslers that is, visit Shooters Pro Shop to see what I mean). For shooting prairie dogs, Vmaxes and Nosler Aussie overuns when available. For high pwer and F-Class, its either Amaxes or Cauterucios. Amaxes for price and good quality in the short to mid range matches. For long range, I use custom made one at a time, by a little old guy in the San Fran area for the same price as a Nosler or Berger for that matter.
However is a Great Ameican Company, with great products and customer service. Just wish they offered their great bullets at a more reasonable price.
