Love to see the Sumatra and the Condor go head to head at 100 yards.... IMO they were the cream of the crop with that bullet....

The Sumatra quite surprised me (& likely everyone else). I'm wondering if the NOE 51gr. FN BT is too long for the Condor.

I was away all summer and didn't get a chance to try it outdoors.

I've only shot them indoors at 25 yards and a small bug-hole for 5 shots is normal, but then, that is what my HW97 does

with it's favourite pellets.

Did I miss something?.... I thought the test was done with Hunter Supply bullets.... :?

Incidently, they were originally the RCBS 57902 RN (below), with a Meplat added so that they could have a HP.... It is a .25 ACP bullet....

Yes- aware they used that bullet. It does look longer yet, than the NOE bullet you designed, Bob.

With the HP or FN it would be close to the same LOA.... IIRC, the RN bullet would not feed in an MRod magazine, but the HP (and my 51 gr. BBT) will....
