I have two pet loads for you to try.
#1 most accurate and best on deer. 49.5 grains of H 414, CCI BR2 Primer and a 120 gr ballistic tip.
#2 Almost as accurate in my rifle. 45.5 grains of Varget Fed 210 m and a 120 grain ballistic tip.
I tried larger bullets and found the 120 BT @ 3000+ to be perfect for deer.
Watch the H414 During the hot months because it is a ball powder and is heat sensitive. But during
the winter it works great.
Also recoil is light and should not bother your wife.
