Blue dot or VV N110 with 250 FTX?

Postby jccinohio » Tue Mar 20, 2018 6:26 pm

I saw where someone tried Blue Dot with a 185gr bullet a few years back.. Anyone tried Blue Dot or VV N110 with the 250 Hornady FTX? I've got about a pound of each and don't have anything else to use it on..

Blue Dot's out (way too fast). I have the remains of a bottle of VV110. I felt it was a little fast for the 250's but an acceptable choice for the 200's and 225's, despite burning dirty. Still not as good a choice as Lil Gun. Not even as good a choice as H110/W296/300MP on the 250's. There are good choices and choices that can be shoe horned into working when the chips are down. For going to the trouble of hand loading to achieve the best performance, choose the best components out of the chute. First experiences set the tone going forward.

Anyone local to me. You're welcome to whats left of the VV110 bottle that I have. It will never get used again.
