Here's what CCI has on them:

This is making me want to try some of them also and see how they shoot in my toys... nothing like having extra backup in the stockpile!!!

For serious hunting, it's worth it to buy better ammo. You're not going to shoot up a large amount of money to kill a limit of squirrels, and cheap stuff risks duds and poor accuracy.

Thanks for the replies 54 Sporter and Donnie. You guys are the first people that I have met that have actually used them for real. Now I'm really excited to try them on some small game.

I had used some of the original CCI SGB's back in the 1990's and again when they started making them again. Accuracy was good, somewhat better on the earlier version. I never got very excited with them, as to me the on-game performance was the same as high velocity round nosers. Late 1990's I got influenced by magazine articles into using match ammo. I liked the accuracy but if you ever screwed up and botched a shot there were just too many wounded squirrels trying to get away. Very rare with the hollowpoints.

If you want a real mess gut shoot one with a Stinger.

My thoughts also.

That's a great way of looking at it for sure! A few boxes of the good stuff should last a few seasons, giving you pently of time to restock your ammo bin...
