Has any used these before? They seem like a good bullet, and I'm going to start reloading. I'll either use these or Sierra boat tails or HPBTs.

What will you be using them for? I haven't used them and the reason is I want the bullet to fragment on up to predator sized animals. The chance of a ricochet bullet or just a shoot through is enough worry for me. Depending on the size of the animal the less likely that would be. Deer sized and above I would definitely want this type of bullet. Especially if I want the meat. But for varmints and predators I'll stick with fragmentation bullets for maximum stopping power and less chance of ricochet. :)
