Just received an email from Arrowhead announcing his new .45cal 300gr XLD NSR no size bullets. Anyone test any yet? Same list price as regular XLD's and listed on the site. Thinking Luke has really got something here.

Description

Through a proprietary sizing process that creates a unique geometry, XLD NSR bullets provide bullet to bore performance with load and shoot convenience without sacrificing performance.


While the NSR bullets do allow for variations in bore diameter, they are only able to accommodate a limited range. They were designed to work with Brux barrels. See below list for feasibility of use with other brands of barrels.


Bartlein: Should work, but has not been tested


Preferred, CVA Paramount, McGowen, Pac-Nor: may work in some cases, but generally will not as barrels on these guns all typically run substantially looser or tighter than a Brux: Pac-Nor: May work in some case


For ease of loading, there are two sizes (large & small diameter). Recommend starting with smaller size; and if not enough loading pressure, bump up to the large size. Test pack available for testing.


The Arrowhead XLD line has proven itself on the range and in the field. The unique hybrid ogive maximizes the ballistic coefficient while maintaining excellent shootability. 0.021″ Jacket Thickness produces excellent terminal results on game at all ranges. If you’re looking for maximum performance out of your muzzleloader, this is the bullet for you!

0.021″ Jacket Thickness


300gr Length = 1.450″

0.36 @ 2500 FPS


Unsure if I violated site rules with the cut and paste, will edit with an apology if so.

I've got a barrel and some of those on order. Should be in shortly and I'll post up some results. I ordered the test pack to find which shoot better.

I use his sized 300 xlds shooting 2550 fps with blackhorn. Accurate combo. I already have the sizer so I am not going to switch but I am sure these will be just as accurate.

I received 100 of them with my new rifle. Range closed until Sept 1st but will report back as soon as I get a chance to send some down range.
