Thanks

I've shot hundreds and hundreds of their HBWC's in .38, and quite a few of their 185gr JHP in 45 as well. I also have around 1K of their 158gr JHP's in the closet I am slowly working through.

They aren't the absolute best but they aren't a bad bullet at all. All of the lead bullets were excellent for the target loads we used them for.

Shot thousands of .357 caliber in .38 spl wadcutters over 2.7 grains of
Bullseye. A primo target bullet & load.

Zero bullets are good

Zero Bullets are quality pills. I don't personally use 115 grain bullets, but their 124 and 147 grain 9mm bullets are top shelf IMO. I also use their 230 grain 45 HF and FMJ.

The Zero 115 gr. JHP is a great bullet (when you can find them!)

Here's one of my favorite loads.

9mm Luger (Springfield Armory 1911)

Bullet: Zero 115 gr. JHP
Powder: Winchester WSF 5.6 grs
Primer: Winchester Small Pistol
Case: Remington
LOAL: 1.130
Velocity: 1224 fps
