This is a game changer particularly for the person who doesn't reload or doesn't have the time or inclination to work up the loads. In typical Buffalo Bore fashion this stuff is accurate in everything I've tested the loads in.


I don't mind reloading and working up loads but it's very cool to be able to pick up and try some factory loads...More options, more better!


I agree! It?s nice to know there is a purpose-built load available for Dangerous Game.

We do live in the golden age of handgun ammo & that is some serious looking stuff! As far as cost goes it really not as bad as you think. Just shoot enough until you're dialed in then practice with a similar load for recoil management, etc. so you stay tuned up, much like Rey is doing for his upcoming bear hunt & you'll be on top of your game when the chips are down.
When you're actually hunting you can only hope to shoot a bunch of them on a good hunt.
Another thing you can do when testing new ammo if you want to see bullet results & you're limited on shooting distance is, figure what your velocity is going to be at 100 yds then download your ammo to that velocity & shoot it at 25 yds & check your results & see how your new bullets perform. Sometimes it's an eye opener.

You are so right, Dick!

It's not difficult to find a lower cost option for practice. I found that a 310gr WFN shoots to the same POI as the factory 300gr Punch loads. At about $4 a shot, I don't want to send many Punch bullets into the dirt. At least the Lehigh's are available as components and that cuts the cost, though I'm having a hard time matching Sundles' velocity.

Good to see the .500's finally made it Lehigh's site.

Hi Trapr!

It?s such a low volume seller, they decided not to bring one out. But all is not lost as there?s a .500 JRH load.

The free-market demands regular consumption of what it offers, as risk of over-extension of financial resources is always an issue. And I have the same problem myself. Grrrrrrrrrrr...
