    Hi

    Use sierra 117g bullet backed by 51 grains of H4895 for all deer and foxes. Worked this up from 48.5 to 52 grains and it gives 1/2 inch group at 100 yards.

    Are you sure you have quoted the right powder/ charge?????????? As my info has useing H4895 37.0-2641-FPS STARTING and 40.0-2797-fps MAX!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YOUR powder weights seem right for H4831 or IMR4831????????

    OOPs - of course you are correct - I am using H4831sc - just goes to show how easy it would be to make a mistake and have someone inexperienced follow you. Apologies again.
