I know the loaded rounds are around $30+ for 20

430 to 500 are in 50 ct. my guess (going with todays prices) $30 to $40. it is they're top of the line at this point.

Ill have to stop in the local gun shop and see if they got any pricelists for 2009 products. I hate buying the sst's and never using the supplied sabots. Right now the flextip sst's are selling around me for $14.00 for 20, so thats about .70 each with sabot. I would hope they would sell for less than that in a box of 50 bullets only.

Corey would you post this over on MM, I think Chuck and some of the people that have experiance with this bullet might have some comments. I can not because I do not use them - have not even shot one... But I think I read there was a perceivable difference between these soft tip and the old hard tip.....

I saw this on another site, thought I let people know that they are coming in bulk. more targeted for reloaders.

Here is a pic of what Corey is talking about.... The BC's even do not look over inflated either...

That 44 cal. 265 gr bullet looks like a winner. I can't wait to give ittry.

.358 200gr... looks like a candidate for a duplex sabot like the .357 195gr DC.

Did they give any recommended expansion velocities?

I'd like to know the recommended velocities for expansion too. That .358 200 grainer looks awful tempting to try out with a MMP .45/.357 sabot in my .45. My only concern would be that I wouldn't be pushing the bullet fast enough for good expansion, especially on longer shots since I don't shoot more than 100 grains loose powder.
