I guess I am a middle-of-the-road type of guy. In my 7X57, I use 140 gr at 2900 fps. Works fine. They drop within about 20-30 yds and little or no bloodshot meat. When I used my 375 H&H, I used a 270 gr bullet at 2600 fps. Seemed like they went maybe a bit further, but still dropped pretty quickly. With my 243, I used an 87 gr HPBT bullet, and the one deer I shot with that went about 30 yds. My 8mm Rem Mag dropped a 200 lbs pig on the run, it stumbled, nosed in, and rolled down the hill. I have found that it makes more of a difference where you shoot them than what you shoot them with.
