I have heard/seen at the local GS from several fella's, these bullets dont expand at all on game. Seen 3 recovered bullets this year and they are not expanding.
Dont use anything except lead balls myself, that sure dont sound good to me for the cash they charge for those things.
Dont shoot the messenger guys! Just what Ive heard and seen.

Hunted yesterday very frustrating. Deer came in at Oh Dark Thirty. I expect them to come in late in late season, but other years light enough to shoot. I could see them feeding at 50-60 yds in my Leupold 8 power binoculars but not with my Nikon 1x scope. Very frustrating and how to get out of stand without spooking them for next hunt. How will I get to try out FPB if deer come in so late? Any ideas?

You can still hunt, just be patient, or maybe use some drivers.

Tried hunting at mid-day? I'm kinda thinking that if they are active at night (due to full moon, etc.) that they are more likely to be active around mid day also.
