    hbwc's confuse me on how they can not be stable, ive seen it in handguns. the front end weighs more than the back end so idk why they would not be stable. id catch one and see if you can gather any info from it.

    in my lever action 44mag with mid weight boolits 7gr trailboss gave same size groups at 25yds as magnum powders 2400-h110 ect. but was an inch higher, which is a good thing I guess because it will drop faster.

    I hit a deer with the lee .50 250gr "real" at 1300fps impact. it was a perfect lengthwise hit entering the lower windpipe and it didn't really expand just squished slightly, so representative of a solid. it made it to the last rib area so roughly...
