Default rem bronze tip bullets?

What is the deal with Bronze tiped bullets made by remington. What are they used for. Varments or deer or what.

On paper they are flat shooting son-of-a-guns
they are about like ballistic tips but carry a little better. Any ideas.

they are ment for med and large game. I have used them often and they seem to work well. I reload thev 150gr bronze point in my 300 savage, 308, and 30-06.

Quilly,
Please stop shouting. Especially when you are wrong. The bronze point is indeed an early version of a ballistic tip. It uses a bronze wedge in order to initiate expansion. The ballistic tip uses plastic.
The bronze points have always been notable for their accuracy. The major knock on them is that at close range and high velocities, they tend to expand too rapidly, doing much damage, but achieving poor penetration.
I have heard the same complaint about ballistic tips, although they appear to have heavier jackets than the bronze points.
Bronze points are excellent deer bullets, but tend to be marginal on larger game. The fact that they have been in production for about 50 years says something about their acceptance by hunters.

I've been shooting them for 10 years 180gr 30-06, can't find them anymore, I bought 4 boxxes last time I like too buy from the same batch # when not reloading. Have 10 bulets left, don't know what to do. Has been one of the best for my use on deer. Atleast 30 deer and all have gone threw with a massive exit. I need that I'm color blind. They are Ballistic!!

eyeball, most of the deer I have shot with them are under 300yrds body weight up to 200 lbs. I don't know if you reload are use factory, I have been shooting factory 180gr.I can tell you 300yrds and under they can do some serious damage. Speed and bulet weight have alot to do with knock down power.To me they would work great, the theory behine the bronze tip is for the tip to push back on the lead at impact with the jacketed portion staying together.

Can you find these factory loads in your area??

I wasn't aware that Remington still made the Bronze Points in loaded ammo. I have used them some in varmit loads, but never stuck them. I always seemed to find another bullet that shot better in a particular gun.

Maybe that's why my reloading bench looks like christmas wrapping paper. Yellow boxes here, red ones there, black ones over there, green ones everywhere and white ones mixed in with the purple ones. Damn, that sure is the prettiest sight I ever saw! <img src=icon_smile_blush.gif border=0 align=middle>
