Reviews and comments written for the Nosler CT Ballistic Tip bullet.
Been shooting these things in a .280 Mntn.Rfl. after WW PP 140 grainers were discontinued, (why i'll never know they were great & cheap).Will shoot a MOA or so if i can get steady. When shooting at impromptu targets like letters on boxes,cans etc. they are very accurate. On game I've been limited to hogs and whitetails and have most drop in their tracks. Complete pass-thru approx 50% of time if the buck's neck ,etc. isn't too thick or range too close. If you don't think they have enough penetration shoot a young tree and find out for yourself. IMO I would not recommend Ballistic-tips at magnum velocities though, who needs that type of tissue destruction for edible game???

I havn't used it yet in the .300, have had excellent results in the .270 version. It has taken several whitetails , hogs and an axis, all one shot with no tracking involved.That was until a couple of weeks ago. Took a walking shot at a hog about 85 yards. Knocked it smooth over.Proceeded to put the gun back in the blind , then watched it jump to it's feet and run off into the brush. No blood no nothing...even got a dog to look , zip nothing. I can't explain that one.
