Re: .224 Bullets
Don't get me wrong that the Dogtown bullets are junk...I should've worded that post differently I spose. I would rank them about the same as Remington or Winchester bulk bullets. Those three seem to have a little wider weight variation than Sierra, Hornady, Berger, Nosler, etc.
Now, my old 788 22-250's favorite bullet was the Winchester bulk 55gr SP, it would shoot one hole groups at 100yds all day long with em...so yeah it's all in what your rifle likes, and sometimes the bulk bullets will work out great for ya. If you're looking for lots of good blasting ammo cheap then the bulk stuff will probably work just fine...and you might find a super-sweet load for em too.
