Default Barnes Varmint Grenades in a Hornet....

Ever one to try a new product (so long as it doesn't cost an arm and a leg!) and on the look out for new dynamic, but more importantly, LIGHT bullets for my Sportco Martini Hornet, I read a review of these in Australian Shooter by Tom Tabor.
He used his 22-250 and was very impressed with the effect and while I noticed the super light weight nature of them I didn't think much about it until I saw the price in adverts.
Normally we pay about AUD$50 for a pack of 50 Barnes bullets.
For AUD$20 less I can get a 50 pack of Woodleigh Bullets so you can see why I'd support the local product.
They are, of course, not .224 cal but when the Varmint Grenades got such a good write up and they were AUD$31 for 100 pills I decided I had to try them.
I picked them up today and they'll be loaded with 11gr of AR2205 powder & a Rem 7 1/2 BR primer and tested at this Saturday's range meet.
Has anyone else tried these either in a Hornet or another cartridge?
If so how did you find them?
Cheers & God Bless
