Very impressed. Wet newsprint point blank from my Dan Wesson with the 4" Barrel on. 2 feet of penetration! I would trust it on most North American game!

Awesome looking bullet! It looks a little like a XTP 210 grain that I use for my Model 657 SS .41 Magnum but without the poly tip. Shot a 350 plus pound hog quarter facing me, hit him in the cheek / neck at 15 yards, at 1580 fps ( with H110 ) it traveled lengthwise of its body and bullet stopped on the outside hide of the opposite rear leg. Retained about 75% of its weight. Never looked at another bullet ever since. The new bullet looks enticing for my .41
