Great video Eric. I need to get some of those bullets they are not needed here yet but they sure look like they work, plus they have a cool name. Glad to see the 17 Hornet out and getting used.

Thanks!  I'm going to order up another batch when I get back from NE CA, so I'll send you some!

That looks awesome. What type of powder were you using and average velocity? Don't have to worry about the lead free here in Texas but ya never know where I might have the opportunity to shoot and what they require!!

I was using 'Lil Gun (be careful with that powder in the .17 Hornet) and my velocities averaged in the 3800fps to 3894fps range.  With the highest velocity being the most accurate in my rifle.

Thanks Eric for the review

Anybody had the chance to try these lately?  I have some sitting on the shelf for when the time is right.  I got the 17 and bought my fatherinlaw some of the 45 gr .224 for our ARs.

I have some loaded up for predator season, but with all the other lead free ammo I have to go through, I don't know if these will get used until late January/early February.

 

Let me know how they do for you Smitty!

 

Btw, they are having a 10% off sale on their site today (Black Friday)

I haven't used any on coyotes.  The one I shot last weekend, I shot with the Winchester Ballistic Silver-Tip lead-free ammo (35 grain).  I have a few more lead-free loads to test, as well as a 70 grain BlitzKing load, so I probably won't get to the LeHighs until February.  If this cold weather continues, it will make for some good calling!

We are at that same point only lots of snow the wind needs to quit for sure, then calling will be great.
