Swift A Frame

Anyone shot the Swift A Frame 265? Looks like they are built like a Nosler Partition.

Have shot the 325s some, as accurate as anything else. They have a big hollowpoint which is bonded.

Buddy shot a 300+# bear last year with them in my 460 encore, both shoulders, pass thru, drt.

Shot one deer with the 300's. Had to shoot twice. First shot -75 yards thru the boiler room. Deer turned and headed back into the swamp (where I did not want to go), so I shot again and severed the spine (I don't like running shots -- but it worked). Both went clean thru. One inch exit holes. I never did use the 265's.

Thanks for the replies. I'm kind of a bullet snob and always looking for the perfect bullet. Where I deer hunt is right on a large river and most bucks are 300 pounds live weight so I'm always looking to bust both shoulders. Iv lost 2 bucks to the river and bother were over 160". My barrel is 18 twist so maybe the 300s would suit me best

If you're shooting in the woods, IE 150yds or less, the Barnes 200gr XPB will anchor them also.

The left three bullets equate to 80yds, 120 yds and 150 yds soft tissue strikes. Catch a shoulder or rib and the expansion range goes out beyond those distances. Those petals are sharp, like tiny copper knives.

Iv been called bonded anal more than once. :o I just don't like to take chances.

That 200gr Barnes in a good one as Hoot noted. Their 250gr TEZ ml bullet flies good in my guns too.

How will that short 200gr bullet do in a 18 twist barrel? The furthest I'd ever shoot is 200 yards. If I sit over a field I'll break out the 243LBC

I have a 1:16 twist with a 26" MGM encore barrel. I'm loading the 200 xpb 44 gr. Lil gun crono at 2869 fps. Last range visit I put 4 bullets into 1 ragged hole. Almost cover the group with a quarter. I think they will fly just fine out of your 1:18 twist.
