    anyone tried some of the cavity back bullets for LR hunting?

    they aren't super high BC but they have a 1400-1600 expansion threshold and retain 90+% weight unless impact velocity is over 3000fps then they loose pedals

    they are monolithic and expand with 3 pedals and supposedly can be driven to similar velocities as same weight lead core bullets

    their hunting line is the MKZ and has a 6mm-92grain-.470BC, 6.5mm-118gr-.505BC, .277-120gr-.365BC, and a .308-168 gr Tipped- .54BC

    here is a link: https://www.cavitybackbullets.com/

    The .277 says a range of 1400 to 3000fps...I don't like that 3000fps max limit...
