Thanks, Dinny
I believe that the range's dirt berm causes more expansion than if they had gone through a deer.

I forgot wee did catch one more of those 270 Gold Dot bullets in a deer that my Dad shot with the Handi .44 Mag. It had ran up and past his treestand and was standing about 20 yards away almost perfectly facing away. Dad centered up the crosshairs on where the bullet would pass through the center of the chest and fired. It entered just right of the spine in front of the hips and it was found under the hide on the left side of the brisket. It was not mushroomed anywhere near as much as the one I dug out of the 100 yard berm.

I only looked at Natchez, but the Speer 270s were $27 per hundred and they wanted $41 per 100 for the 265 FPs!!

I just got some more Harvestor 50/429 sabots and would like to try my 270 Speers and also those 265 FTX that I got off of you to see if they shoot anything like those 250 Shockwaves did in my Sidekick.

Still living under the curse, but one of these days I will shed this body, be clothed with an immortal one, and everything will be good.

Deep curl .44 mags seem to work well. In the below link, scroll down to post #4.
