I bagan using the Hornady FPB projectiles this season. I shoot a Traditions Buckskinner sidelock scoped rifle, which I have owned for approximately 15 years. It has served me well, but has always been a bear to load. On reloading after first shot it has not been uncommon for me to have to ram the ramrod against a tree to seat the bullet. This goes for sabots, minnie balls, and the plastic skirted bullets that are so popular. The original fiberglas ramrod was replaced with a steel one because of this loading problem. The Hornadys are a breeze to load and are also very accurate and hard hitting. I have fired more than five consecutive shots without once wiping the bore and every FPB has loaded easily. I believe I will be able to go back to the fiberglas ramrod with these projectiles.
