    Wow! Who make those sexy looking bullets in the center? :D

    I didn't realize their BC was so high though. Impressive

    Is that the only caliber they are made in? I wonder what a 6.5 would give for BC?

    Does that sucker expand? It looks like it'd just cut a clean pin hole through the animal. You've gotta be careful with that tip, or you could impale yourself :D

    It expands better than anything out there and is one of the reasons for the design. Don't let the sharp tip fool you, it actually helps start the expansion and raises b.c. as well. It will expand down to 1300'. I have bloodied myself on the tips a few times though:D
