Rated 5 out of 5 by Igotnothing from Great bullet. Almost legal in Idaho. I have 6 muzzleloaders, and have tested thousands of different combinations. This bullet is very accurate in a variety of different barrels / powders. The polymer tip excludes it from use as a big game hunting bullet in Idaho. However, a small drill bit can be used to get a grip on the polymer tip and remove it so that the bullet complies with Idaho's specific rules. The tip-less bullet is still accurate, it just will have a slightly different ballistic and wound channel - differences I have not been able to quantify. Federal should consider making a tip-less version for sale to Idaho hunters.

Rated 4 out of 5 by txhunter58 from Tip sticking to ramrod Hey old guy, that can happen with ANY bullet that has a plastic tip. You have to use a special loading jag that is designed for the spire type points. Won't ever have that problem again. That makes it a little harder in the field, but one of the quirks of using this type of bullet. Had the same thing happen to me with the Hornady FPB and changing the loading tip solved the problem

Rated 5 out of 5 by valgrego from Great bullet for my muzzleloader After testing several bullets in my new Traditions Strikerfire LDR, these bullets proved to be the most accurate. Here are the stats: Strikerfire LDR with a 30" barrel, Vortex Diamondback 4-12x40 scope; 100gr Alliant MZ Black loose powder, Winchester 209 primer, clean barrel for each shot, bench rest, temp was low 90s, elevation approx 5000'. Result: two bullet holes touching, less than 1/2" apart, 100yds. I'm siting in at 150yds, so I have the point of impact 3" high at 100. Additionally, these bullets load easily enough that I don't use a short starter, but they're snug enough that they won't come loose while hunting. So far, I'm very happy with these. I have an elk hunt in December (Northern Arizona). I'm excited to see how they do.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Old Guy from Bullet pulled out of barrel by ramrod So, the rifle fires and no recoil and no impact on the target. On the ground is the bullet, not the plastic part, only the bullet. When pushed down the bore the plastic tip entered the ramrod end and pulled the bullet out of the barrel when the ramrod was removed from the barrel. Must pay attention and check the ramrod to prevent this from happening on a follow up shot. The jury is still out on this product. Never expected this to happen.
