    There isn't a loading manual out there out there for them, I just wanted to hear anyones experience with them. Most of the information I found surfing the web was just general information.

    Also I wanted to know if you use them do you still load solids in your guns? The front end on the North Fork deforms but it still retains most of it weight

    Thanks for any information!

    Enysse,

    I have hunted with the North Fork bullets in my 375 H&H and 470 Nitro.

    The NF bonded bullet IMO is one of the best bonded bullets on the market, maybe even edging out the Swift AFrame. It is the only bonded bullet I will hunt with in my big bores. Weight retention is excellent even at higher velocities.

    The NF Cup Point solid is maybe the best buffalo bullet on the market. It is a limited expanding monolithic solid. Performance has been very good in my 470.

    The North Fork Flat Nose solid has also performed well on elephant and buffalo. I riveted the nose over on one on a buffalo once, but still feel they are a very good bullet. The NF or CEB are the only two solids I will use for hunting.

    They all have been accurate in my rifles.
