I was talking with several guys at the range last night, when a well-known national class shooter (who shall remain nameless) entered the conversation. The talk turned to reloading and reloading components, and, to make a long story short, the shooting celeb told us that Rainier bullets (specifically FMJ) tend to destabilize at distances over 50 feet.

I have used Rainier bullets since I started reloading, (granted, only a short time ago) and do not shoot for accuracy at distances greater than listed above. Have any of you experienced anything like this with Rainier rounds?

Thanks in advance for your responses.
