Midway USA dogtown bullets ?

Which of these bullets are more accurate for you the 55 gr HP or the 55 gr soft point ?

I shoot the soft point and am very pleased with them. I haven't tried the hollow points in my AR but I do shoot the 34 grainers in my 204 and they are extremely accurate.

Unless you intend shooting them in my rifle, the question needs to be which of those two bullets are the most accurate in YOUR rifle.

I would recommend you pick up a box of both and try them. I never purchase a large quantity of bullets until I've tested them in my rifle. The last thing I need is a large batch of bullets that won't group worth squat.

I have had good luck with both the 50 gr SP and the 55 gr SP in my .223's. I have never tried the hollow points. Be careful if you consider the 55 gr SP in the 6mm. I ordered 1000 of them from Nosler (SHOTS bullets) and they only goup OK in my Sako A-7, and not at all in a Stevens 200 with 1 in 9" twist. Anybody interested in about 800 of them?

I've also had good luck with them. I like them for a plinking round. Not sure I would use them for hunting though.

In my 223 bolt and AR's it's the 55HPBT
In my 22-250 it's the 55 HPBT

I Never liked the 55SP on Varmints or Targets. They will go thru a varmint and travel 3-400 yards easily in Alfalfa.

The HP does not, it blows up and is very accurate. It also feeds flawlessly in my AR's. Does very good in my 8 and 9 twists. made by Nosler they are a bargain, consistent weights.
