tried heavier, tried lighter, this is THE load for my 26\" Sendero. This shoots flatter at 400 yards than anything going, but I did not go over 200 grains with my handloads. After trying at least 6 different loads/bullets, this ammunition was still the best I had used out of my gun.
I have taken several big game animals with this round in the 10 years I have been using it. This may be the best load for a variety of hunting, a good blend of weight, speed, and accuracy. - R. C.
