With an ever-increasing selection of exotic-design bullets from which to choose, it’s sometimes easy to overlook the old-school options that not only represent a tremendous value, but have been extensively field tested, too. Such is the case with Speer’s Hot-Cor bullets. The flat-base, exposed-lead projectiles offer upward of 85 percent weight retention and exceptional accuracy.
