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.

Thes all look like good loads for fox. Try a good 30 caliber on deer. Might I suggest the 308 or the 300 Savage?

thanks a 30 cal would be nice not sure FLO would grant me one just to try and might be cheaper to try home loads first but 300 win mag should just do fox as well so might try
