Is there something that makes these superior to the Hornady .55 GR non-poly tipped non-cannelure projectiles I bought from them last week at .11 per round versus these? I don't know why I would want a poly tipped projectile to punch holes in paper or hit steel? Does that feature only matter for hunting or HD?

They're verminator projectiles. Basically they're designed to annihilate gophers, squirrels, and ground hogs. Considering the current state of reloading supplies in mind with such a limited supply for us, I figured I'd share this link and let you guys determine if they'll work for your needs.

Works fine on paper targets. At this point in time one can't be to selective when components become available.

My primary goal is H335 and the Hornady 55gr FMJBT. But I'm increasing that reserve because we may never return to normal.

Primary goal now is make it go bang and send the projectile. Adding lesser desired powder (picked up 5#BLC-2) and various bullets to the reserve.

I'm always stocked well, but never well enough in these times.

Powder Valley has these (with a cannelure) for $14.80/100.
