Cost appears to be about the same as the ballistic tips.
I am looking at them for shooting in a 25-06. I am looking at the 115's which look like they might be a good antelope/deer/varmit bullet with a good BC of .453 for that size bullet.
Sounds like the .25-06 and the Nosler Silver Ballistic Tip should be a real go getter on deer and such.
I have been using the Nos. 140 CT in a .280 Rem. for the last 3 years and have had excellent results on whitetails and a couple yotes that made the mistake of trying to cross a crop field area we were hunting. The shots were all under 300yds. I have not been able to tell any difference with the lubalox as far as copper fouling goes in this paticular rifle.
I don't know what would happen if these bullets were used at magnum velocities at close range but I would think they would perform better at longer ranges.
Good luck on that load in your .25-06
