Took the advice of the two verrrry wise men here on the 140 grain vs beating my last brain cell against the wall on the 130's, and glad I did. Loaded the 140 grain boat tail Hornady with 56 grains of SC and it one holed the paper @ 100 yards. Interestingly, it 3 holed a buck at 150 yards and he fell over backwards within his own length. Only bad part is that the bullet apparently split and caught a couple of inches of backstrap. I normally make headshots as it makes cleanup easier and no wasted meat, but I had a good chest cavity view and wanted to see what the load would do in the breadbasket. It will be headshots forever on this load! I will be eating well this year once again-thank you very much for the advice and info!
