Has anyone any experience with these?
https://www.cavitybackbullets.com/category-s/106.htm

I would prefer a lead free option for when I go out to the farm to hunt. I was looking around and saw these. A bit pricey but if they work well then I could look into them more. Or if anyone has a different option then feel free to let me know.

This would be out of a 16" barrel.
This would be for Texas white tail and feral hog.

Barnes tsx- ttsx bullets are lead free. And the sub-sonic 175gr. from MDWS are as well.

Nosler E tip 85gr for the 6.8 is a good option

I use hornady GMX extensively with 243, 300blk and 223.

I wish they had a lighter offering than 100gn for 6.8, but im gonna try the Etips for the first time in my new 277wlv upper.

Ive bagged several doe's with the 300blk and 125gn GMX pills. They do a very good job and dont react funny like pure copper. Plus i like matchig them up with the vmax of same or near same size so i can interchange data. They are longer so velocity is affected just a tad, but not enough to worry about hunting needs.

I try to buy them on sale from midway as blems. Saves money cuz none of the lead free are cheap.

Have you seen these?  Cheaper than Barnes and the other ones...

How funny, i was just watching youtube vid of its performance in gel at simulated velocities. Looks really interesting and i like that it opens up at such low speeds.

Even the gmx and noslers say that they have a fairly high minimum to openbecause they are guilding metal, which is a bit harder than pure copper.

I dont know if ill get a hunting season this year because im in the final stages of applying to a police department, bit if i do, i will def try those bullets!

Texas doesnt require us to use lead free, but i like to. I once saw a video that xray'd deer shot with lead bullet oppossed to copperbullets and you will be surprised how much lead is left over in the meat and how far is spreads from the wound. Pretty eye opening.

I agree.  Other than vermin, dangerous game or hogs, all my hunting will be done lead-free from now on.

I have a couple unopened boxes of Barnes 95TTSX in the EE right now as well.  (Don't need them anymore, ha!)
