Kinda what I was thinking Grouse. The XP seems to me to be a potentially awesome large/dangerous game bullet, but likely no real advantage over the Bloodline on deer sized game or thin skinned animals.

How do these two bullets compare in price? (bloodline vs XP)
I'm in the dark here as I haven't bought any "up to date" bullets in along time due to just using pure lead conicals in my whites. I'm interested now for my CVA Optima V2 handgun, 1:28 twist.

The XP can be built for less money so it is less money. I thought Lehigh was saying around 90 cents for the XP and some where in the area of $1.35 for the CF.... I THINK

Shipping is a straight $5 for any order amount....

The XP bullets are a lot cheaper when you factor shipping.
