Anyone use these? I'm pairing it with 120 grains of blackhorn to try for a 200 yard shot. Thanks guys

I'm using them but have no real world data for you. Other than I do get good accuracy with them and 2 triple7 pellets.

I used to use them, but switched when I couldn't get a pass-thru out of my CVA Optima. I would have thought that I missed 1 deer had I not seen it fall 75yd away after running off; it left absolutely no blood trail. I now use 300gr shockwaves occasionally, albeit in a smokeless ml, but mainly use Hornady 300gr hp.

I shoot them and 110 gr of blackhorn and can get a 200 yard shot. as for pass through, im my experiance they expand very well and do lots of terminal damage and sometime the do and sometimes they dont pass through depending on what the bullet hits.

I think they are pretty much the same bullet as the SST's which I've shot. Couple deer from the front and didn't have pass throughs but major damage inside as they dropped in their tracks. A few broadside shots that had pass throughs but didn't leave a huge blood trail but enough blood if needed to track. I've had the same deal with Barnes 195gn bullets. Pass throughs, deer ran about 40 yards then pile up. Some had decent blood and a couple had no blood and they all had either heart lung or lung shots.
