I have now gone to a 308 for all my stalking. The problem is that i used 150 gr ppu this w/end & they realy nock the bucks about. I am looking at loading some nosler bt game 125 gn & some speer 130 gn softpoints. i am thinking of running them at 2500 to 2600 fps. To limit the impact on the roe. i will be using Imr 4895 powder with cci primers. Has anyone gone down this route for roe & how do they perform ? Mainly under 100 yds. many thanks Kev
Many thanks for all your comments.
I am usings factory ppu, heart shots no meat damage but the other side of the ribs look like youve thrown a brick through them, all the internals are like jelly.
We mainly shoot roe but we are now seeing a few reds on the ground so would like to be flexible.
