Great to see new ammo being introduced.......but although they are cheap.......it does look like quality has suffered as a consequence of that.

There appears to be lots of lead flashing around the hollow tip....both in the close-up pics and those in the open tin.

At the high power/velocity you Yanks can use, maybe that won't be such an issue though.
