I've been using the Combined Technology (CT) Ballistic Silvertip bullets for the past few weeks and i have to say I'm very impressed with the results so far.
I've been launching 115 grainers out of the 25.06 using 50 grains IMR 4831.
They are incredibly accurate!
The results on the deer have been good too. I was previously using 100 grain Nostler BT's and the meat damage was very severe for body shots.
The CT's seem to hold together much better with considerably less meat damage, but still good knockdown. The science behind them makes good sense and the results appear to reinforce their claims. I've only shot about a dozen animals with them so far but I have to say they are bloody good!
Have a look here:
Here's some more info:
"1. Streamlined polycarbonate tip–resists deformation in magazine, provides a streamlined meplat for flat trajectory, initiates positive expansion on impact with light and medium game. 2. Thin jacket mouth–opens easily and peels uniformly rearward providing dependable long range, low velocity expansion. 3. Long ogive–specially engineered, streamlined portion of bullet in front of bearing surface minimizes wind drift and flattens trajectories. 4. Core cavity–allows polycarbonate tip to generate momentum before contact with lead core, allows dependable bullet expansion at lowest practical velocity levels and moves bullet center of gravity rearward for better accuracy. 5. Form fitted core–provides tremendous bullet accuracy by virtue of uniformity and concentricity, special lead alloys are engineered to provide uniform expansion in hunting bullets, virtual explosion in varmint bullets. 6. Lubalox® exterior coating–reduces fouling, pressure and friction between bullet and bore, providing longer barrel life, easier cleaning and enhanced accuracy. 7. Tapered jacket–allows bullet to be driven at high velocity while maintaining integrity; controls expansion in game bullets. 8. Solid Base® Boattail design–boattail base reduces drag to maximize long range ballistic performance while providing a platform for a large diameter mushroom; allows maximum accuracy at high velocity levels by preventing base deformation in high intensity cartridges.

I'll certainly be buying some more!
