Have they been approved for use in t/r or f stanard yet? If they have, they'll certainly be worth a look.

They are being sold by the various States so one could assume they are approved. Sierra did not have to have theirs approved so I guess the same applies to HBC.
I know they are being sold and used at the Vic Queens so go for it.
