That 296 load is very similar to one of my own which I call the "Forcing Cone Eroder Extraordinaire", or "Shock and Awe". 296 and light for caliber bullets are a combination that I'm not very fond of. Sure, it makes for great velocity, but it throws a huge flame and muzzle blast.

Any reason you prefer the 200 grain bullets over 240 grains? A very classic deer load is 23 to 24 grains of 296 with almost any 240 grain JHP.
