Don't know about the new ones but I've been a Hornady lover for several years now.

Deer Assassin, me and 3 buddies have used barnes expanders since they came out and we have shot lots of does and bucks and 90 percent of them drop where we shoot them. They dont pattern as well as some bullets but they plenty accurate enough. I switched to the TMZ bullet this year and shot a buck at 110 yards and the deer was quartering to me and the bullet went in the front shoulder and lodged in the offside just in front of the ham. I wish it would have exited but the deer only ran 50 yards and there was massive internal injuries. This year Im either gonna switch back to the expanders or go to a heavier TMZ.

I bet they wouldn't work well out of my new savage. Then again they might if they sealed properly.

I keep killing them with 300 grain XTP bullets so I kinda hate to switch.

When I run out of the 200 bullets I have now I might give it a shot.

If these are as good as the article indicates they will be as revolutionary as the PB's were when they came out......I will definitely be giving these some serious testing very soon when i can get some.
