I posted this in the Inline Muzzleloading. I thought I would post it here. Anybody done any testing/shooting with the Barnes 45 ACP 185gr TAC-XP? If so, would like to hear, how the little Barnes holds up to that kind of speed.

They are (A.) designed for ~800-950 fps, so typically fall under ML speed. Usual rule for us is to keep impact velocity OVER ~900 fps.
and (B.) pretty light for the usual ML palette. I doubt they have ever been tried in ML, especially smokeless
