    I use Rainiers for all my reloading with the exception of .30-06 (because they don't make one for that) and .44 Magnum (because I shoot a .44 Desert Eagle and it requires near-max loads). There is nothing wrong with the LeadSafe rounds that I have found.

    i load xtp also but sometimes i can get the rem 240gr sjhp for $19 for 100. the only thing you cant do with these bullets is load compressed rounds the tip is too soft. might try some of those lead safe.

    It depends on what you're going to use the gun for. If for hunting, a Keith-style SWC or else an XTP Hornady ... the one you choose depends on the game and the velocity of your load. Some HP-XTPs come apart easily at high speeds.

    "240gr sjhp for $19 for 100. the only thing you cant do with these bullets is load compressed rounds the tip is too soft."

    There is always a work-a-round.

    Get a 'Hot-glue' gun. Oil the nose and hollow point bullet, run a dob of 'hot-glue' onto the bullet, let it setup/cool. It will fall off. Trim the glue dob to fit into your seating die and adjust the seating depth. After a hundred or so rounds, a new glue dob may be needed.

    The noise/hollow point is not deformed.

    presspuller, I wouldn't hesitate. I've used the Rainier bullets in a 500 S&W Mag rifle and had good results.
