Default Bullet question

I came across a bullet I hadn't seen before. Federal Premium Trophy Copper Muzzleloader Bullet. Seen them in a Midway ad. Anyone have experience with them?

Brand new bullet that just came out. I've seen some tests. Very accurate. Average terminal performance.

They are sabotless like the PB, they slide down the barrel nice, they open up like a Barnes at 100 yards, the base stays with the bullet, on the tests, at 200 yards the bullets did not open up and the base seperated from the bullets, 270 gr bullet, very accurate at both range tests

I have in testing, but not on an animal. Did not receive enough to stash away for hunting.

They wanted to have them ready to be released the 1st of Aug. Then they found out they had a problem with them, but never said what the problem was, and nothing else has been said, or when they will release them tp the public.
