    Do they open up at slower speeds?

    hell yes...at full speed they are known as handgrenades.....we used them to great effect in the 7.62x39mm also keep eye out for NBT in 125grn...both work awesomely at bush ranges at slightly slower speeds..... not sure how speer TNT would go slowly..they dont exit labrador sized wallaby at full speed so could be another candidate for slower load....

    I used to use these on my 3030 leveraction. They were actually meant for 3030 handguns but I tried them in my levergun. Clover at 100m with ease.

    The older onse had a 4mm hollow cavity while later bullets had somthing simular to a 5mm indent(looks like the hole was created using the very tip of a drill).

    Killed Kudu, warthog and Impala with ease.
