IF YOU COULD LOAD THEM LONG IN A SINGLE SHOT YOU MIGHT COULD GET A LOT OF MV AND MAYBE FANTASTIC PERFORMANCE ON GAME, I FIGURE SOMEONE ON THIS FORUM MAY JUST DO IT.

It's been slow here as far as deer movement goes, but it typically picks back up after Christmas. If I can get my hands on some, I might try the factory loads out before season ends.

If I could get just the bullets I'd try em, but just to old to start buying anything already loaded. Besides, my encore pistol and Katahdin seem to be very well fed with the Swift 300 grain A-Frame.

I just can't wrap my head around using 1/3rd of what I got. At the range I take game at, I don't need more speed, and I can't imagine quicker expansion or penetration than I am getting now.

I will try them as components when they become available,I have no choice.With the exception of Badlands Precision Bullets(they only make rifle bullets)I would never even consider copper bullets.They're hard to load,they're finicky, they lose velocity fast and they're expensive-sometimes double the cost of real bullets!Just my $.02

I haven?t found copper bullets to be finicky at all. The load development I performed for the CEB bullets I used a few years ago, was remarkably simple and the accuracy second to none. They cost more, definitely, but they are a game changer as far as terminal performance is concerned. The XPBs are really good bullets as well.
