Yes, Hornady Great Plains Conical.

One of my (if not the)favorites.

I just ordered a mess of them in different weights yesterday, and I found a person who quoted me"$35, shipped to your door. For 5 boxes of the 410 grain Hornady Great Plains." So I think I will cut an order to me today also... Never hurts to have extra lead around.

Strutter - Oh yeah, my TC Firehawk has eaten a steady diet of Great Plains over the years....as well as a few deer along the way. First 2/3 of bullet drops easily into the bore, then the last "band" at the top of the bullet touches the rifling. With a slight tap, the bullet then engages the rifling.

Since the conical is soft swaged, you might have to use a lead removing solvent if you put several thru your rifle to prevent leading.

I used them before and they are great. Like it was said the first two thirds goes in easy then the top of the bullet engages the rifling. I just gave it a wack with my hand and it went right in. I used them all the time until I found the No Excuses brand of conical. In my opinion they are even better and very accurate out of the rifles I use them in. They even come with a money back guaranty and payment can be made after you get them. They are a little pricey, but they are worth it. Here's the site. http://members.aol.com/noexcusesb/

Default RE: Anyone use this bullet

Thanks for the info guys. Hadn't really thought of them leading the barrel up. Is this a big problem?

The No Excuses brand look good too. They are cheaper than most considering they are sold in lots of 50 whereas most others are for 20. Will probably have to try some of them as well.

Thanks again,
Rob

Strutter - If you're interested in cheap..'er...inexpensive conicals, you may want to look at:

http://www.blackjackhill.com/

They're selling 50 for around $12. Any purchase over $25 and they pick up the shipping tab. Although I've never tried them, Cayugad recommends them and he seems like a straight shooter to me. I may try them after XMas when the wife stops spending all my cash!![][]

Also, I've been swapping emails with a guy I found on GunBroker.com...due a search of "maxi" and they'll come up. He's selling 200 conicals (50 cal or 54 cal, maxi ball or maxi hunter) for $38 shipping included...that's less than 20 cents apiece! When I questioned him about the quality and hardness of the conicals he's selling, he was good enough to offer to send me some samples free of charge.

As for you experiencing leading problems using conicals...just maintain your rifle with a quality lead removing solvent and nylon brush and you won't have any problems. I use a lead solvent about evey other time I use the typical hot soapy water bath.

I myself have purchase conicals from black jack hill over at ebay, he does a nice job in casting.I used his REAL CONICAL and the price is right.
I only purchase the lyman bullet from a guy over at another form ,He was selling them for $3.99 a box ,he just may have 5 boxes left in the 385 grain HP
