T/C Maxi Hunters - 350 Grain???

I bought a box of T/C Prelubed 350gr Maxihunters today and shot 'em up the range in my new T/C Firestorm with 90gr FFG Goex. They shot well, but I'm a little concerned about their terminal performance and that they went down the barrel with very little resistance...Much less than a Powerbelt or other sabot. Is this normal? They also seemed to shoot better with a dirty barrel...possibly because there was a little more resistance? Anyhow, I couldn't pass them up...they were 5.00/box of 20.

You would have to define "little resistance to me"
Are they shooting well? I take it they are, then you'll be fine. If they were not engaging the rifling , you'd know it.
And 90grs and one of those bricks will kill easy enough of course won't shoot real flat like at 300yds like a 22-250 but you get the point.

They work good and it's normal for them to go down with not much resistance, just make sure they don't slide in your barrel.
I would load one and hold the muzzle downward and shake the rifle toward the ground a little then bring it up and run the ramrod down and check to see if it moved any.

I looked at a box of 54 cal maxi balls the other day, The last box I bought was around $12.00 and they were now over $18.00 and the ONLY difference was the addition of "A Smith & Wesson Company" to the bottom of the label...

At 5 dollars a box , buying all of them would have been the right thing to do.
