They are a partition bulllet except the front section of lead is bonded to the jacket. I havn't shot them personally but have heard that they are hard to get to group well.

strange....I've had much better success with them than Nosler partitians....and the Noslers are not bonded.

Personally, I consider the Swift A-Frames the best bullet we have for non dangerous game in the world!!!

I've shot a deer with a .277 cal 150gr A-Frame and an elk with a 225gr .338 A-Frame. Performance was exceptional in both. Neither grouped quite as well as Partitions in the rifles I loaded them for, but they were close and I didn't spend nearly as much time on load development as I did with the Nosler bullets. I would think that given an equal amount of effort, they would be at least as accurate.

Vapodog - You are right when you say that there isn't a better bullet going. But a few are just as good, and if they group well in your rifle, whatever they are, smile and use them. <img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>

Please understand...in a couple months I'm going to Africa on a plains game hunt and the only ammo I'm taking is a 200 grain .300 H&H and the bullet is a Swift A-Frame. That's how strongly I believe in them!!!!!!

If I was shooting impala, I'd look to the Remington core lokt 100 grain in my .243 and have a good time.......but I'm looking at Kudu and eland....

It's your money guys,.....spend anyway you want.....and I'll do the same!!!!!

Vapodog - Good luck on your safari. You will have the time of your life. I like the classic choice of the .300 H&H Mag...There is more than a little nostalgia going on there.

I can assure you the A-Frames will perform admirably!! <img src=icon_smile_approve.gif border=0 align=middle>

hey.....if you think the .300 H&H is classic, I'm taking my father's .25-20 model '92 winchester with me for the Duikers and warthogs. I sure to hell ain't going to stuff Swift A-Frames in that thing!!!!!

No comparison really with Noslers. Best bullet I reload for. Love the performance on Moose. But can't afford those things for shooting all the time. I will use them on moose
