Yep, a hollow based, jacketed modern day Minie bullet.

Looks interesting. Shame they wont be made in .45cal. Wonder how well they will actually shoot and perform? The 100 yard bullet after impact didnt mushroom that great either. Also seems like 350 grain is the only offered. Have to offer more weights than just one if you want to sell something. Should be interesting. When do they come out?

Little spendy but hope it turns out to be a good hunting bullet.

If they kept the price at below $1, they could have competed with the SST and SW, the BC is about the same. Looks good on paper/pictures. Fits in ALL MLer is a big one. Wonder how they did that.
Thanks for posting this. Going to the Shot Show in Vegas? Chap

Now if someone would just bring out a jacketed boattail with roughly the dimensions of a Dead Center...

Really that is the point they just keep on driving and penetrating - same theory as the Nosler or the Barnes.... I'll take penetratio with moderate expansion all day...

keep driving and then just put all that ft lbs of energy into the dirt. I'll give these a try once they come out just to see how they do, but due to only having one bullet weight, i dont really think these will be a high seller. Without the skirt, i wonder how well these would do in the TC line?

If they shoot accurately from all MZ's(T/C Omega,Triumph,Pro hunter ect) and penetrate as advertised they will sell like hot cakes...
