I started to buy a couple boxes but then got to thinking.....and
I talked myself out of it.
But I did get some 86 JSP's for the 25-20 from a member of another gun forum, ;) and
a box of Hornady 143 gr ELD'X's for the Creedmoor. :D
I may still buy one just to have, would be a good hunter.
But heck 250's ain't nuttin to sneeze at. ;) :lol:

Not hunting with these but they do make for a nice shooting load and mostly for woods carry with the Colt 45 revolvers and would work well for the Henry lever Carbine as well. I like those large meplat bullets!

Sittin out in the hunting house this morning.
Nothing moving, so playing on phone and noticed Midway has free shipping on orders over $49.
So I ordered 2 boxes, saved like $14.😉

I looked at these on their website for the brinell hardness, which they say is between 18-21. Pretty hard, but, they do mention they use a lube/coating that prevents any leading. Interesting. I 'll wait on a range report, but may try a box or two later.
