IMHO those Thunderbolts are pure crap...
IMHO those Federal "Lightning" are almost pure crap but for $1.97 for 50, I'll get over it...
Picked up a box of the 325 you were asking about yesterday and ran 200ish through my unmodified 10/22. No FT-anythings. Performance wise they're not quite as good as the Fed 550"s, but still pretty decent.
Fed 550-36g hp 1260 fps
Fed target grade-40g solid 1200 fps
I was getting roughly the same drop at 100 yards with both. The 550's seemed to perform just a little better.
