Re: Hornady is bringing out a mono bulllet
From what I saw their BC was lower than a comparable TTSX bullet and expansion @ 2,000 ft/sec was pretty poor. Put together, I can't think the LR crowd will get too excited over this bullet.
However, Hornady has made some very good bullets over the years and I'd guess that they will be very competitively priced. I've shoot my share of Barnes bullets and I do cringe a bit whenever I have to restock the reloading bench. They sound more like an E-Tip (grooved) than anything else.
The monolithic bullet field is getting very interesting. Just in time too because who knows what evil things Obama & the enviro-whackos will dream up to further restrict sport shooting/hunting.
