Re: 280 AI Youth Gun?

I assume you guys are recommending the reduced load for target practice only? After I watched my oldest daughter shoot a deer and an elk that both got away that were both shot with a reduced load Nosler 168 G partition, I said I'd never do that again.

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. You might be surprised.........Rich
