    I am on 55gn of H380 and 150 gn amax and game kings, depending on what i am doing. Gives 2850 fps with my set up. Works well for reds and roe

    Mine loves Sako 123gn (foxes hate them) but I would be careful using them on something I was eating as they can make a bit of a mess and for Deer I use 150gn or 180gn Federals .

    For factory loads I find the RWS 165gn DKs do the job very well.
