I can see exactly what they were getting at in designing them, and as I said before, realy like the idea/ design.

I was just suprised at how light they were. like Wheelguns said, I hope they make them available as components. I think I would mess around with them

I agree with reloading them... Did not care for the CEB HP`s performance on a large boar but they were accurate as heck.. Its only fair to give them as try as there being marketed to us.. If anything it should be interesting..

I'll wait for someone to try them and show us how they work on animals. I may get a wild hair and try some of the .357 Mag stuff when it is available.

Here is the new Hornady 200 gr Monoflex, 200 gr XTP, and 300 gr XTP....there is a reason the new bullet is 200 gr's.....if it was heavier, there would be NO room in the case for powder.....

I WAS COMPARING THE POINTY HP BARNES 45 CALIBER 200gr XPB TO HORNADY's NEW 200gr FPHP 45 CALIBER BULLET, BOTH ARE MADE OF COPPER AND BOTH ARE LIGHT FOR LENGTH. I FOUND THE CORBON 460 LOAD WITH THE BARNES TO BE A GOOD KILLER BUT THEY DID NOT SEEM TO IMPART ANY SMACK/WHACK EFFECT UPON IMPACT. LOOKS LIKE HORNADY IS TRYING TO IMPROVE UPON THE BARNES WITH A BIGGER HP AND AN EXPANDER MATERIAL IN THE HP SO AS TO GET MORE EXPANSION SOONER. THIS MAY RESULT IN MORE SMACK/WHACK UPON IMPACT, WHICH, ON DEER, IMHO, WOULD BE A VERY GOOD THING. I GOT PLENTY OF CORBON AMMO ON HAND WITH THE 200gr BARNES, AND I DO NOT USE MY 460 MUCH ANYMORE, SO I MAY NOT GET ANY OF THIS HORNADY STUFF, BUT LOOKING FORWARD TO REPORTS ON IT.

THE 200 HORNADY IN A 454 FILLS A NICHE THAT DOESN'T EXIST IN MY LIFE. IT IS VERY HARD TO PRESSURE UP LIGHT BULLETS IN THESE LONGER STRAIGHT WALLED REVOLVER CARTRIDGES WITH TRADITIONAL "MAGNUM" POWDERS.

No desire for factory handgun hunting ammo.

They'll probably release them as components in 2020. It'd be nice to be able to experiment with the OAL. Wonder if they'll fit in a 460 chamber when seated out to the lower groove?

X2 on what 45MAN said. Those 200 grain XPB's will kill, but not quickly.
