I picked these Up the other day, Winchester ballistic silvertip, .223 I think that they might be too pretty to shoot.

Anyone used them before??

IIRC, those are just Nosler Ballistic Tips (polycarbonate tips on a hollow-point) that have been moly'd. The bullets are pretty accurate and a pretty decent hunting round.

Never tried them in my AR, but I use the .243 version. Spits out a 55gr. bullet at a little over 4000fps. Talk about fragmentation! Super accurate, to boot. Coyotes, beware.

You can buy the bullets under the Combined Technologies name (Nosler/Winchester). I bought some of them in 150gr. .308 to reload the 30-06 with. You have to put them in nickel plated brass or it just don't look right

Edited to add these just might be the coolest looking rounds ever!

yeah they are too pretty to shoot, so I guess Ill just put them in a SHTF mag.

Yeah, shot them w/my bushmaster shorty last summer. Was able to hit pop cans (3 out of 5) at 200m. (Of course I've had similar results with PMC and PMP FMJ bullets.)
