    I used the GK and Prohunter in 100 grain for several years. 42 grains of N160, with a standard CCI primer gave me 2850 fps consistently with good accuracy.
    I only stopped using them because I got a bad batch that did horrendous meat damage. I moved to Speer 85 grain SPBT, which I have used ever since.
    I think I was just unfortunate in getting a bad batch that made me lose confidence in them. I have shot Red, Fallow and Sika with the 100 grain Sierras.

    Ok I use a sako 85 finlite .
    I get excellent accuracy sub moa.@ 100 yds. Using 95 gr nosler ballistic tip hunting with 45 gr viht560
    Have dropped everything upto fallow (have never shot sika). If you can get nosler bt they are well worth the extra few quid.
