    Will be doing some load testing for first time with 103gn Copperheads in BRA which Im led to believe are very similar to the 103 Vapor Trails. For the guys using Vapor Trails what have you found them like compared to Berger 105 or Sierra 107s?.

    Cheers Rushty

    You know those really good 4 shot groups that measure an inch or less at 600yd with that 5th shot opening the group up to a 3.5-4" group? Yea, all 5 stay together with the Vaportrails.

    Never heard of a copperhead bullet, but there's only one Vaportrail.

    The problem with the "off the shelf" bullets, is most find them to work best when "on the shelf".;)
