I have.  It's o.k. ammo, but nothing special IMO.  Uses a typical "deer class" hunting bullet.

I've used them once to sight in a 300win mag on a Wby Mrk V for a buddy of mine.  They were 165gr and accuracy was acceptable.  No other experience than that.

my wifes uncles started using them a year or two ago and they seem to work fine on whitetails. i shot a box of 140gr'ers out of my old .280rem, they were ok like lucytuma mentioned.

I have used them in a 338 Federal and a 270 WSM.  My experience has been exactly the same as the other respondents.  Not as accurate as some of the premium ammo, but not that far from it.

My dad shot a 250 pound black bear with 180 grain fusion out of his 30-06.  It seemed to work fine.  Expanded well and passed through.

Smile This (these) could be the next oncoming thing in bullet technology. I could be wrong but I believe that these bullets are electroplated in that the core of the bullet is immersed in a conductive solution as a cathode and a copper or jacket source is an anode and the copper is transferred or plated (attracted) onto the cathode. I think (again I ask for a correction) that this is not a new idea I think that Speer Gold Dot bullets and the old Remington Power Lock bullets were made the same way. In my thinking this would eliminate much waste from making bullets using punched cup, core, and swage methods. Possibly some bullet tech having more knowledge on this subject might make some comments. As I remember using my .22-.250 I was able to get super good accuracy (like one hole 5 shot groups) using the old Remington Power Lock (Loct?) bullets and they were either 53 or 55 grains.
