I know a lot of competitors who reload and use the 73 grain .223 Rem Berger Bullets for windy conditions when they really want to be sure to hit distant targets with Alpha hits, or a hit at all. Now there are few more options from Berger with their new .223 Remington 73 Grain Boat Tail Target and the 77 Grain OTM Tactical cartridges.
