I had seen that as well but not having any experience with lead free bullets, like this and I am guessing the Barnes I didn't know if they substantially lowered pressures or not. I'm guessing this is a pretty long bullet, seeing that it's loaded to an almost identical overall length in a 3 mm shorter case.

It worked great! Was able to take a whitetail after verifying zero. Also groups were sub-moa. My chrony is down which is a real bummer because I was really curious as to how close to the touted magnum-bombe load this was.

and when you do that with such a caliber, it says something about the shooter too...
