Anyone try .45-70 Government 325gr. Xtreme Hunter Solid Monolithic Hunting Ammo. They’re the Leheigh Defense copper solids. I've been shooting Underwood ammo for many years and find it hot and reliable, but never in my lever guns. Thinking about this one for black bears in thick timber.

I should have been more clear in my original post. I have to use non-lead ammo for hunting because of my stupid State laws. My only other option are the Barnes hollow points which I have also, but don’t know how they perform on game.

With regard to your state's regressive laws, are the non-lead bullets required to be expanding, as well?
Many monolithic bullets are not intended to mushroom.
No. There’s no giving a crap about the lethality of the projectile, just as long as some scavenger doesn’t get lead poisoning from eating the carcass.

Also, I’m motivated now to try the Barnes out based on Charlie-NY’s experience with them.
