I've hunted with Cabela's sporterized (chrome lined barrel) Hawken, 54 caliber for a couple of years, using Great Plains 410s. But for a pig hunt in CA, those bullets won't work - no lead allowed. So I'm looking at the Barnes Expander. My question is: how do those tend to shoot, compared to the bigger lead bullets - point of impact higher, lower or what? I won't have a chance to go to the range before the hunt, and will probably just have time for a few trial shots the night before. So any kind of a head's up of what to expect would be appreciated. Also, for pigs I'm thinking the smaller bullet (250?) would be enough.
Thanks for any input.
