No, they are boattail.

doesnt look the case
Once I know it's bullet fussy & nowt else I can then at least have a while before I have to sort another bullet.
I am thinking if it shoots these it will also shoot the Varmint ones which are similar but due to not being able to be posted I can't get hold of readily.
Hi I think you will find 40g V-Max can be got in BT or FB
Howa Varmint 204 Ruger,243win,308win
39gr Bilitzkings look like spitzers in my new Kranks catalogue - near enough?
Very unusual to find any 20 cal that does not like 39gr SBKs.
If your rifle likes the 40 gr VMAX I have a few about that I will be quite happy to swop for 39gr Sierra Blitzkings. My 20 ( 1 in 9) prefers the 39s. 40s are ok but not as good as 39s. PM me to arrange.
I have been up to the farm I use for zeroing & it seems the barrel floating issue was the culprit after all.
The 39s shot a small group but the Bergers shot a tad better.
I think I'll keep the BK's for the meantime,Thanks for the offer though.
So off upstairs shortly to load up some more ready for a hopefully christening session tonight.
I'll sort some piccies out tomorrow of the rifle.
Cheers for the replies chaps.
Is your barrel a Lother Walther tube - I noticed it is a 10 twist which is uncommon in 20 cal.
Have you crono'd your BK's - just wondering what velocities it was doing with the tighter twist.
Yes a Walther @ 22in
No, I didn't take the chrono because it could have turned into a 10min session if they didn't shoot acceptably.
I will now load some up & go out with a bench & chrono for a better session.
I came close to taking the loopy off this one & sticking it back on the .243 but stuck with it & now it's paid off.
I now need to start a scope fund for the .243, it just doesn't look right with a Whitetail classic on top
Glad to read that you've sorted it out.
