    Default Federal 90gr Varmint and Predator?

    Is there any data on this stuff? Any chance it's a gold dot?

    Idk nothing about them but I bet they are loaded with TNT bullets. No chance of a Gold Dot. It states they are a JHP.

    Speer makes the gold dot bullets
    Speer also makes the tnt bullet (it's a jacketed hollow point)
    Federal uses speer bullets in some of their loaded ammo

    Just a guess though as I have not seen any yet

    LUCK
    is the residue leftover when you subtract chance from preparation.



    Mil-Spec means that it meets the lowest specifications that the military will accept. Do you want mil-spec parts?

    I saw some of that ammo in a lock gun shop a while back as well. Jacketed HP so can't be GD or the TNT.

    Is the 90g TNT not a jacketed hollow point? I will be money on this one!

    No. It is a Jacketed HP. Here's photo the of the front of the box and ammo. Says 6.8 SPC TNT Jacketed HP. Maybe it is TNT. I thought the TNT was a SP bullet.

    glad to see a new offering but I wish it was cheaper, the tnt is a good accurate plinking bullet, but those are not plinking prices
