So has any body tried these yet? I'm gonna order a box of the 50 grn soon and give them a try. Cabelas has them in their catalog for 25 bucks a box. Not bad.

Yeah i've been shooting them all season and can't find anything to complain about. So far I've shot a bobcat and a fox with the GMX. The fox dropped instantly due to a good shot and the bobcat took some follow up just because my shot placement wasn't the best. When I skinned out the fox her vitals had just been reduced to jelly.They shoot straight for me, but I have a friend with an AR who can't shoot much better than a 5 inch group at 100 yards
