Fail Safe Bullets???

I have yet to see this bullet mentioned on this wonderful site. I always thought it would be the perfect bullet for high velocity cartiages.

I am getting ready to spring for some bullets for my 7mm RUM and wonder what you guys thought of them????

Thanks

    I don't believe that the FailSafe bullet is manufactured any more. Winchester is making a similar bullet, possibly an improved version of the FailSafe, which is called the XP3. (if memory serves, anyway)

    I just got off the phone with Midway and they did say that it has been discontinued...guess thats why noone has mentioned them.

    Thanks

    Yup discontinued, However the xp3 are an improved version of the fail safe.. I get boxes of them and then pull the bullets I then load them .001 off the lands and I absolutley love them. I even have expieremented with upping the powder charge a few grains. (I didnt see any improvment in my groups so I stay with factory powder charge) I do get much tighter groups pushing the out.. I think it is the best medium range big game bullet. If they would come out with a 210g 30 cal bullet with a .6 bc I would be in heavin!!
