Hi guys, I have a problem, I shoot a 260 rem 21" barrel, I was using 120gn sierra prohunters over imr4024 getting 2880fps, but found these were separating upon impact and making a mess of roe, found a jacket in the haunch and core separated in the shoulder/spine. Tried slowing these down but then they didnt shoot well in my rifle.
So I changed to Barnes TTSx 120gn over H4350 getting 2730 fps, and getting almost no expansion at all but a hell of a lot of bruising. Cant go much quicker as already just over max load, using 43.5gn H4350.
So I guess I've gone from one extreme to another, has anyone got a happy medium, dont need laser flat trajectory or a million fps, just a reliable round to do the job without smashing carcasses to bits, but leaving a good trail if the shot isn't 100%
