Thanks everyone, I guess I will buy these. I was using areolite powerbelts in my cva wolf but couldn't get good groups so was looking for a different bullet.

They've worked fine on elk as well.

I used them on my deer and elk last year. Worked great. I was actually able to dig the slug out of the elk (poor shot, hit the spine) and it had mushroomed great. I tried several different loads last year and these were by far the easiest to load and was able to get a good groups out of them.

Had a bad experience with them last year. Bullets would penetrate fur but blow apart after that. Shot a buck 5 times, 4 of which were under 20 yards and none blew through rib cage. A 20 recovery process turned into several follow up shots, several miles and an 8 hour recovery job. I switched to Hornady this year.
