I really like my 125s for deer some times the 150. I have had the gun forever so thats why Im all over the board. I wont admit to the long ranges I have shot with it. but it has made afew magnum guys pissed. Its a great caliber enjoy it.
Mark, what kind of powder are you using to get 2,900 with a 165? I have shot a few 308's
& I have never achieved that.
BTW, the 140 Accubond was more accurate than a ballistic tip or anything else in my 270 last fall & terminal performance left nothing to be desired. I will be trying the 165 in my 308, but right now I need to test the 168 Bergers, I just picked up a box.
