Any experience good or bad with the 270 grain all copper Federal bor-lock muzzy bullets? They shoot great out of my rifle but I read inconsistent reviews about their performance. Primary thing I read is they tumble and don't open up?

Thanks!

My daughter tried them at the range and they shot great.......no evidence of tumbling. The problem we had was that they wouldn't fit tight in the barrel, they'd slide up and down after seating. And that is in a barrel that uses .500" Thors that fit tight.

I have ran them in my CVA MR and my wifes CVA Optima and accuracy was awesome. Im running these over BH209 and CCI primers. All the targets I shot showed no evidence of tumbling or keyholes.
I have not experienced them sliding up or down the barrel, but every gun is gonna be different.

Pretty sure these qualify as legal ammo in a lot of states that disallow sabots. Anyone got firsthand accounts of terminal performance?
