    I was just looking at things on the Brownells web site and ran across a listing for new bullets... Nosler 6mm 115 grain RDF, G7=0.312
    I did a search on the Nosler website and google, but no other info for this bullet?
    Wonder if an 8 twist 6 dasher will stabilize this?

    Anyone have any info on this new bullet?

    You might well want to reconsider ANY RDF's.

    If my loads with 105 gr RDF's start shooting bigger than .3 to .4 moa groups with SD's of 5 and ES of 12 at 3040 fps out of my Dasher I will reconsider. Until then, I'm gonna keep shooting them! :)

    If anyone has gotten the new 115 gr RDF's, would be interested to know how they compared to the 105 gr RDF's.

    Haven't heard of 115s but I wouldn't bother with them either given Nosler's lack of care as far as weight variation with these bullets are concerned. They're just not match grade.

    I've been shooting 115 DTAC's since '07, they shoot great. I really can't see this bullet being any better.

    If you want high bc try the 110 Sierra smk. Stabilized fine from my 7.5 twist dasher and produced around 3030 FPS with a compressed load of rl 16. Very consistent.

    Hard pass on the RDF's.

    They seldom work for those chasing precision shooting. Deer at a few hundred, help yourself.There is a reason they are constantly reducing the price on them. They sell mostly to first time users.

    with all that I hear about Nosler stuff I am scared to try them.

    They look pretty, but are very erratic in performance. Lots of split groups and unexplained fliers in my experience with the 105 RDF’s.

    I actually just had some success with the 105s. Now when I say success, I mean shooting off a bipod at 400 metres in a 6XC (MPA chassis) - Managed to comfortably hold the 10 ring on an F-class target - 60 thou jump using H4350 - To say I was surprised was an understatement but the bullets I shot were weight sorted and based on the variation across a packet, I can only assume it helped.
