We have been testing them and I will have complete results soon. It looks good so far, weghts are good, consistency awesome. We are running them just over 3100 fps and shooting in the 3's easy enough. Still have to do BC and distance testing.

3100 fps - are you running them out of a 300 RUM or 300 WM?

After looking at the cross sections I think they will be a fine hunting bullet. We are running them out of a 1-10 30" hart chambered in 300 RUM.
