Unfortunately the bullet is made with a heat treated alloy to a BHN of 22. If it expands (depends on impact velocity and medium) the front end (expansion petals) will blow or beak off very quickly. Penetration after that would be questionable given the remaining retained bullet weight.
Should have been cast of 16-1 alloy. Even then the velocity should be kept under 1500 fps due to that gaping HP. I'd spend my money on another bullet, especially at $33 per 50.
The Bull Shop doesn't cast with just any alloy for free. There's as much as a 50% increase in cost for some alloys like 20:1. I also find their ordering system archaic and communication with them has always been interesting to say the least. Somedays I think they don't have enough ventilation inside the shop...
