Tony, I used them in .45 ACP but didn't find them to be as good as Oregon Trail's bullets.
Of course, I didn't experiment a great deal with them, so take that as a caveat. It was nice, though, not to have to wipe the wax off the loaded rounds.

If you are talking about this percision bullets.

I have used them and really liked the 45 230 grain RN. I found them to be about as clean as jacketed and much easier to work with then plan hard cast lead. They shot very nicely for me and I found them to be very accurate. They cost more the plan hardcast, but I feel that they are worth the price when compared to the cost of jacketed 45.

I have also tried the 9 mm and 38 versions and I liked them but I don't think they are worth the money. For only $5 more you can order jacketed from Midway.

The guy that own the place is great and I found him to be very helpful with all my questions.

Precision bullets are great. I have used them over the past year and won't use anything else. It's basically the velocity of a cast bullet but no leading and smoke. These are excellent bullets.

Have to agree with the others. I have used them in the past in a 200grn SWC for my 45ACP. I have since switched to reloading jacketed ammo. I still have 3 boxes of 250 if your interested. I'll let em go REAL cheap!
