I have tried Hornady 225gr and 240gr XTPs. The 225s shoot flatter and group slightly better but the 240s will do more damage on 200# game. I have dropped 2/3 deer I have shot with my 77/44... the other one was a bad shot on my part and went about 100 yards, all were shot with the 240gr XTP.
Ive got some Buffalo Bore ammo on order to test out, 255gr cast and 240gr+p cast. I will report back with my findings when the ammo arrives and I find time!
