    Eley Subsonic Xtra Plus vs Eley Subsonic Hollow Point (help)

    Just asking the question of is there any diff in the new packaged Eley bullets with out the Xtra Plus on the box!!

    i have just purchased some more Eley hollow points and found out on the box they no longer say Xtra plus on the box ??
    so a quick call to Eley to ask if there was any diff, they said no, it's only the packaging that's changed ??

    so the question to members that have used the Xtra Plus and the new packaged boxes is there any diff in the bullets!

    thanks...

    Intresting when they first came out they were not called called Xtra Plus and I think the bullet weight was 38grn. They then went to 40grn and were called Xtra Plus. I use them in my annie, however Winchester subs are almost as good. Suprisingly Magtechs were brilliant in my annie and so cheap, but now not so and v difficult to get hold of.

    No difference whatsoever, I'm still head shooting bunnies at 150yds with it and no re-zeroing from xtra plus to hollow point.

    with a circa 20-24" drop on a 50 yd zero.......
    really?
    is that the best choice of calibre/cartridge for that range?
