What are you hunting? would be my first question.What's your favorite bullet it use for hunting?
Especially driven Hard !!! If your looking for shoulders nothing beats them . Good balance of trajectory , energy , and recoil loaded hot in my 50 knight custom . This is what i use when i dont know where i will set up or ranges from near to quite far . Ive yet to recover one and the damage is brutal even at 200 yds .Barnes 275xpb.
Sounds like ive been lucky D55 . I bet im at least 250fps slower with 140grV of bh209 . Seems like most of my shots are really close ,50yds or less , or pretty far ,150 to 200yds where i like to be at with the xpb loaded .. Close ones get the shoulders and longer the lungs . Safests bets i figure . Wish i would find a "mount ornament" recovered , but i cant complain !!! The bullet works !!! The Barnes 275 xpb is a good one !!!I am pushing the 275xpb @ 2475fps out of my Apex conversion sml. I have taken 7 deer with this particular bullet. Longest shot was only about 125yds. Shot a buck in Tenn. @ about 90yds. quartering hard to and hit it in front of the onside shoulder and when I skinned it the bullet was under the hide offside rear quarter it was drt. Only bullet ever recovered and it opened perfectly.
