Has anyone tried the Cutting Edge bullets? All copper from Advanced Precision Tech

I ordered some for my 50 cal.  I live in California and we will be no lead pretty soon.

I have not taken any game yet, but I shoot the 40/240 in my McRem & the 458/265 Raptor in my 52 cal with a 458/52 sabot. Great quality & great shooters. I know Carlos has taken deer with them & was very pleased with the way they worked. I'm sure some of the other SML guys will weigh in with some first hand experience too.

I see Cutting Edge Bullets carries a .400 (10 mm), 150 grain all-copper hollow-point handgun bullet called the HG Raptor.  I'd be curious scratch to know whether that bullet would fly well in a sabot-ed .45 smoker?   I'm thinking a possible for hunting since it should hold-up well to a muzzleloader velocity with its all-copper construction.

--------------------------------------------------
p.s.  I know smoke-talk is not the place here, but perhaps someone has some experience with the .400's to share.

Hello all- Samantha here from Cutting Edge Bullets. Just wanted to give a little insight. Marty- yes, you would definitely be able to do that with our 10mm handgun RAPTORS! Would be wicked!



Also just to clarify- all of our bullets are manufactured by us, Cutting Edge Bullets. There is no company called Advanced Precision Technology. That's just a little tagline we put on the box. Im glad that you guys brought that to our attention though! We can see now how confusing that looks!

Thank you Samantha for your reply, and welcome to the forum!

I like the length of this light bullet for a .45 sabot. Do you have a Ballistic Coefficient and Sectional Density for this particular bullet(.400/150 grainer) Question   (I couldn't find that on your website unless I missed it)

Just a note: I found out yesterday that Florida allows smokeless powder for muzzleload hunting. They rewrote the requirements and forgot to rule it out so it's legal now.

I do know the 185 & 200 gr. Leigh will kill deer. The deer is DEAD before it hit the ground.

sqezer, I have those both those bullets but have not personally hit the range with them yet through my smokers.  I'm in the process of switching gun ranges right now but plan to be back posting range results for several bullets this fall, including the 150 grain RAPTOR mentioned above.
