Slight discoloration. Sometimes I think they are just over-runs. I've bought many of these and often I can find no blemishes at all. They used to be cheaper at around $17 per 100. At $22x10 = $220 + $12 = $232k shipped

Midsouth has Nosler 168 1k for $227 + $15 shipping = $242k shipped

Not really that much savings.

How do you like them vs the expensive Sierra's?

They hit the same POI.

I randomly loaded a 20 round mag with 10 Nosler 168 and 10 SMK 168s. Same brass, same charge. They all went through the same hole about 1.5 MOA. No difference at all. Nosler projectiles are all I use.

I buy a lot of the blemish 168 CC's from SPS, have compared them to new 168 CC's and most often the blemished bullets are better than the new bullets I buy from a local source.

My M1A really likes 42 grains of IMR 4064 paired with these bullets.
