Hornady® introduces another choice in "true" easy load convenience with the 300 gr. FPB®
now you can choose between the Hornady® 350 gr. FPB,® or the new 300 gr. FPB.® Maintaining its specially engineered profile, requiring no lube, and a mere 25 pounds of loading force, the new 300 gr. FPB® is one of the easiest loading muzzleloader projectiles on the market.
Not only is the new 300 gr. FPB® clean and convenient, it's extremely accurate. Engineered and tested to work flawlessly in all 50 cal muzzleloaders, the FPB® features exclusive Flex Tip® Technology from Hornady.® The Flex Tip® creates a very streamlined and very durable meplat that maximizes exterior ballistics. Upon impact the flexible elastomer tip compresses into the nose of the bullet causing violent expansion. This expansion creates a large temporary cavity, resulting in a very dynamic transfer of energy to the target for minimal tracking.
- Elastomer tip aids in expansion and clean kills at impact velocities from 800 to 2000+ fps.
- Specially engineered profile delivers flat trajectories for long-range accuracy.
- Copper jacket and specially engineered profile eliminate bullet/sabot fouling and the need for a "plastic skirt."
- Compared to other "easy load" bullets, the FPB® requires a mere 25 pounds of loading pressure, and no plastic skirt.
I opted to see what Wal Mart had and was glad I did. I got a 15 bullet pack of T/C Shockwaves, 250 gr. Spire Point sabots for $7.00. I should have bout a few at that price. Wondering how differant they'll shoot than the same bullit in a hollow point?
