ive got a 20inch barrel on my 243 that i use as a foxing rig at this current time but i need it as a second deer gun now.
it loves 87 grain bullets (it currently fires 87vmax), so i want to stick to the 87 grains (as it does not like heavier ones) so i was thinking of the hornady 87 BTHP, now to get it deer legal (in england) i worked out that bullet (87bthp) will need to be travelling a close to 3000fps to acheive 1700 ft/ilbs.
can anybody do any fancy calculations (quickload etc etc) to tell me what powder would be needed/suitable and how much of it to acheive 3000 fps though a 20 incher please ?????????
