I have let them shoot reduced loads for target practice but have a hunting load for the field. Has anyone else had problems with reduced loads on big game?
Not necessarily just for target. There have been a LOT of animals effectively killed with lesser rounds over the years, The trick is to compensate for range and just as importantly, don't use a bullet designed for the big magnums but rather a thinner skinned bullet that will expand at the velocity you will be impacting at.
