New Hornady FPB Bullet

Anybody tried this new sabotless bullet yet? Might just be the cat's pajamas this fall if it will shoot accurately in my Encore.

I hope they offer one a little heavier later. I would want one with at least as much SD as
a 300gr. sabot bullet for penetration on big animals. Looks like a step in the right direction.

Huh. Looks like a jacketed Minie ball. Might have to try one.

That is exactly what I mean, it is 350gr, but 50cal. as opposed to a 300 gr.45cal. so again, I would rather have more SD, but we will see.
