As much as I enjoyed shooting the hogs....this recent hunt was also a serious test of bullets I recently bought...There is an on-line company that Franchise showed me called Reloading Valley that specialize in selling pulled bullets from factory ammunition... The bullets I used were Swift .45 caliber 300 grain A-Frames which are gripped and pulled from the loaded case leaving two slight indentations just above the cannelure so with enough AA#9 powder to give me a little over 1600fps I placed two shots at a 100 yard target that were one inch cXc apart and 1 1/2" from the bullseye..Accuracy was as good as if purchased from Swift itself...
However, the main reason, which plenty of you guys will agree, is the price.... I purchased 50 of the .45 caliber A-Frames for
$29 or a bag of 100 for $55.... The Swift web site is selling 50 of the same bullet for $54...That is a savings of $25... If you buy the bag of 100 you are saving $53... Here is a chance to get .45 caliber 300gr A-frames at a tremendous savings..Here is the link http://www.reloadingvalley.com/45-Caliber-300gr-452-Swift-A-Frame-HP-p/rv45p300safhp-0050.htm The photo shows two of these bullets recovered from game... They work...

Looks interesting. Why did they pull the bullets from factory ammo?

This may be discontinued ammunition but the best way to answer your question is to contact the site.....

Those are a bargain. Allows for a lot of less expensive practice.
Going to have to try
Thanks James.

Many reasons. Certain lots failed to pass QC standards. Recalled ammunition for various reasons. Returned goods which most manufacturers will not resell for product liability reasons. Military does the same thing. "Pulls" of military bullets and brass are periodically available in certain calibers. All equates to good deals for the reloading community.

James, those are perfectly mushroomed bullets! Hard to believe they work that perfect! Gotta try some.
