ABSOLUTELY..they are very reliable and predictable, but no one has ever posted one that didn't expand, because they all do, push them close to 1,000 fps and they'll expand..they are soft up front much like a Weldcore. If they didn't have a partition, they expand as flat as a pancake, they'd retain their weight, but they would look so much differently. The bonding process makes bullets inherently softer. Bullet don't have to be hard or brittle to work. Keep in mind for example the 300 gr 45 cal A frame expands at mild 45 Colt loads and also stays together at 460 Velocities....bonding is beautiful, but if they were hard, this bullet would never expand at mild Colt velocities.
