450matt, do you reload? If so, there are offerings from Nosler (E-Tips) and Barnes. I have heard good things on both but think the E-Tips have better BC's.

I've been working nonlead loads for all my guns, over the past couple years. My experience with the triple shocks is that they need speed to expand. The tipped versions seem better. To force expansion, drop down to a lighter bullet and choose the powder with highest velocities. Use the COAL listed in the barnes manual, otherwise the barnes data is not real helpful in my experience.
