So I have over 400 of these little suckers, as they don't appear to be sought after I thought I would load some
Ran a range of charges from 58-64gr N160
got fairly decent results at 60 and 64gr, the latter slightly better at 1/2-3/4"
using VV data they appear to be pushing around 3250fps at 60gr and 3400fps at 64gr
one thing i do notice is the muzzle flame is impressive from 64gr N160! in a 23" barrel
wondering if a faster powder or maybe a magnum primer might tame that
does anyone actually use 100gr soft points on deer?
I had a thought that these would make a cracking hind round
more energy at 120yds than a .243 100gr round at the muzzle!
