I shoot them through my 300WSM, and like them a lot.
It does take a couple foulers before it settles down and starts shooting like I know she can.
Really no difference between a standard copper jacketed bullet and these for hte most part. The coating does give me a couple FPS more, no difference in cleaning, and identical terminal performance to the Nosler BT of the same weight.
I suspect the only real difference is the coating and the color of the ballistic tip thingy.
Whitetails are DRT inside 300 with a well placed shot. Anything inside 100 turns their innards to a red soupy goo. But, I don't have to track them at all!
