    Can anyone share some insight on how these will do in a real world hunting scenario? How's the expansion and weight retention? I got a bunch of the 240 grn JSP and a few of the 300 grn JHP and wanted to load them up to use in my Ruger 44 carbine. Pictures would be great!!!

    Well hopefully they're half "engineered" or something.. in the old days, and perhaps today, many jacketed slugs essentially performed as a solid. and a round nose ish solid sucks.
    Semi wadcutters are still available.

    So I got a chance to shoot the 240gr JSP from my ruger 44 carbine

    23.5 gr of H110
    CCI large pistol primer
    Remington brass
    fps averaged 1718 and all were within a few FPS of that

    Groups were about 2.5" I didn't expect 1 hole groups but I think I could do better if I eased back to 23.0 gr of H110@1680-1690fps

    These were recovered from a sand/gravel bank at 100yds

    I'll weigh them and get a real measurement and post up the results later.

    I think only grouse and such have gravel and rocks in their craw.
