Bullet review
I regularly use 55gr taipan hp's in a 22-250. terminal performance is impressive. the bullets expand violently creating a devastating wound channel. for those wanting to limit meat or pelt destruction shot placment would need to be very specific. downrange accuracy is excellent with shots on foxes out to 300m taken almost every trip. roo's, goats and medium to large pigs have all been taken with ease, though in this calibre i would'nt be confident on large deer or large boars. i also use the 150gr taipan in .303 brit for target shooting with consistent results

I have started using the .308 Taipan 130gr HP bullet for taking kangaroos. The load is explosive and it is also stable at extreme ranges (200m + at night), where I have taken the required head-shots. I have been using Hornady 60gr HP's in my .22-250 (also for roos) but I am now planning to change over to Taipans when my current stock of Hornady bullets runs out.

I use taipan 130 grn HP, in my .270 win, with 54 grn of AR2209 powder,, This bullet impresses me with its 1" group at distances up to 200 mts ( 220 yds ). It is too strong for Roo's as it tends to go straight thru then ( being soft animals ) I cannot wait to go and nail some feral pigs, and provided there is not too much mud on them , I expect good results Bryan O'Halloran Wonthaggi.

I load the 60 grain Taipan hollow point in .243 Winchester calibre. Great for Fox, Goat, Feral cats, Dingoes and Kangaroos. Too lightly constructed for pigs [ hogs ]. From North West Australia.

I load the 60 grain Taipan hollow point in .243 Winchester. Great for 'roos [ kangaroos ] and foxes, feral cats, dingoes and goats. I load the 250 grain pointed soft point in .375 Holland and Holland Magnum. I shoot Camels and Donkeys for pet-meat in North-West Australia. The Taipan is basically a soft projectile like the Winchester CXP1/ CXP2 rated projectiles, opens up rapidly, kills quickly placed in the heart/ lung area and holds its mushroom shape without breaking up. Not for rear raking shots, but devastating on frontal brisket shots to the junction of neck & chest for camel/ donkey.

Australia made projectiles, widelly used by Macropod Harvesters (kangaroo shooters) in the State of Queensland. These projectiles are capable of very good accuracy and enormous knock-down power. The HP 55gr on .223 and HP 80gr for the .243 are mostly used. The "head shot" legal requirement for the shooting of kangaroos, is easely achieved up to 300 yeards.
