    Each bullet is pre-lubed with Slick Silver, a dry lubricant that minimizes fouling, increases velocities, makes loading easier and lets you put more shots through the barrel between cleanings.

    Are you asking about the rifle or pistol bullets?

    These Buffalo Bullet rifle conicals have the same weights as the Hornady Great Plains.
    Generally, the Ball-ets shoot well in slow twist rifles out to about 70 yards, sometimes requiring a wool wad.
    Cabela's has a few reviews for the pistol conicals.

    I still have a couple of boxes left that I ordered with my first '60. Not sure why, but after my first Cowboy Action match I had a long streak of lead in the barrel.
    You do gain an extra 40 grains or so of lead, so they might be a better choice for hunting.
