358-158-RF is this a LBT copy and what do you guys think of this boolit as a hunting or target boolit

I suppose it looks lke an LBT design. I like it very much. It's nicely accurate from my K-38, but I've only had it up to 910 fps in that. I'd bet it would be a fine hunting slug with that flatnose.
My 6 cavity Lee drops those slugs like rain :-)

I have been using this bullet in my 686 and other 357's for several years, ACWW+2%. Its my fav for now and I can turn out lots real quick. Great at mid to high level performance. Takes the pins off the table at less than high vel loadings. Strange, it did not do well in the 38 Special low level loads.
I really like that design, but I want a gas check on it. I'd also like the same design in a 180gr with a gas check.
I have a 44, 310gr gas check like it and it hits with much authority!

Bisley; I shoot it pretty hard out of 357, about 1050 fps from 4" with around 9.5 HS-7, works good.
