    Using Viht N16 with sierra 100grn pro hunter. Very good bullet so far.
    Always think before you pull that trigger.

    i use 35gn hodgdon H380 in in my prohunter, with game kings in 100gn. 2750 fps or there about, and so far no issues.

    I recommend ramshot powder. Its double based powder and they have lots of load data. plus its pretty cheap and I find that they list data for pretty quick loads and have a few which will be zipping those 100grainers out at over 3000fps.

    i used h414 or varget with 100 gr pro-hunters cci mag primers in my old 19" steyr scout shot sub .5 bug holes 100 yds , but n140 will be a good powder as this is as good as varget a tad faster on the burn chart.
