The results are in.
Well, in addition to testing the Hornady 265 gr FTX bullets, I also tried some Blackhorn 209 powder with 300 gr Barnes Expanders, the 265 gr FTX's, and 290 gr Barnes TMZ's with the blue EZ loader sabots. Take a look. The 290 gr Barnes are in the crappy picture and were shot on a used target. Great group numbered 1-2-3 in black.
Guns have only two enemies, rust and politicians!
Deer are amazing creatures....so please don't burn the sauteed onions and I'll pass on the steak sauce, thank you.
