    Hog hunting to be exact. I recently bought a 300blk that on it's way to my FFL's sometime next week and picked up a few boxes of this stuff tonight. It looks like an all copper HP, but I can little to no information on this round.

    Let us know how it does. For 75cents a round I'll give it a try if you like it.

    I think that I have a friend in CA that uses this caliber for deer and elk.

    Picked some of it up a couple of weeks back.
    Going to give it a whirl mid next week,I'll report how it performs at least accuracy wise. SJ 40

    I don't off hand but will ask a friend originally from the area and PM you with the information I receive from him,it may take a couple or four days as I think he's hunting in N Y state. SJ 40

    Got a chance to put 40 rounds of it through a 16" 1/8 twist barrel this last friday.

    In my opinion it's accurate enough,easy to put three or five rounds touching at 100'.

    The other noticeable plus for it is it's very clean burning powder wise. I started out with a clean gun,when I got it home broke out the bolt and bolt face clean as when I started not a bit of carbon on the gas key.

    If I find more of it and the price is right I won't hesitate,I can't speak for terminal performance on game but as far as accuracy it will more than get the job done. SJ 40
