    I’ve always end up just getting the fmj cause the green tips are frowned upon everywhere I go, even outdoors due to fires, etc. Are you guys just shooting it on your own property?

    I run (ran ) them as my barrel/twist rate preferred them. Weren't banned at the ranges in B.C I shoot (other than at steel targets) but needed a mag or two of lead FMJ to shoot at steel targets for the stage or two that had them in competitions.

    Even 2990/3070/3100 could be from the exact same gun. It's mass production ammo, 100fps variance isn't crazy from the same case.

    Same here, I'm buying them mostly due to what appears to be a better pairing with 1:7 and 1:8 twist of my guns and this is the most affordable bulk 62gr out there.

    Not sure if your question has already been answered or not but I can say that all PMC "X-TAC" brass I've encountered is crimped. The primers also have a coloured sealant, I believe it was red for the 55gr FMJ and purple for the 62gr FMJ. This could be outdated though as this ammo was purchased earlier in 2020 before the shortages, they may have changed their process since then.
