    Does anyone know if there has been a design change with this bullet? The old chart on Chuck Hawks page, assuming to be correct, shows a velocity range of approx 900-1800 fps. New boxes are labeled with a recommended range of 700-1500 fps. https://www.chuckhawks.com/underrated_hornady_XTP.htm

    I am looking for a good bullet choice for close deer range-less than 100 yards with many shots around 30-50 yards. I picked up an Accura V1 from Midway late last year and zeroed it with 250 gr. T-EZs and 110 gr. BH209. Between not enough hunting time and only seeing a few small deer, I didn't...
