    Anybody used any of these bullets yet? Curious if there is a real gain over 80gr VLD’s.

    I have not used them yet, but I do have a box of 140gr RDF, 6.5, in the closet. After reading extensively about them I am both excited and concerned. First I am excited as the bc from Nosler appears to be underestimated on some of the RDF's, not sure about the 85. Worried because they are becoming know for Random Damn Fliers. It does seem that they like a good jump. Let us know if you shoot them.

    I most likely won’t try them. I’m building a .223 on a Broughton 1-7” and throating it for the 90gr VLD. I hope I can get it to shoot with the 90’s.
