    The Impact, even with a scope, tends to be a light gun. From experience I can tell you that a 77grain weighed charge, or the 100 grain measure equivalent, with a 300 grain bullet is going to be punchy so you'll want to be certain you have good eye relief with the scope if you ever decide to go to a heavier bullet down the road. The 250 grain bullet you mention and a 90 grain [measured charge I assume] charge of 209 Blackhorn should be fairly manageable recoil wise and should give very good accuracy too.

    I invented tubes. :D Go with the Optima if the choice is between those 2 models only.

    Yes It is a measured charge. Thank you for the reply, I'm really looking forward to shooting this gun
