Try the 123's and 130's.

You'll like the results.

130bergers @ 2984 when you put it through the pumphouse no matter how big the animal is dead is dead.

You should be able to get them going faster than that. Are you using H4350?

My load is...

130grain JLK
45.4grain H4350
Fiocchi LR Primer

Mag length!

My 260 by MCR

Also, your optics, weather and software set up is SUPER BADASS!

ya i'm using H4350... tried to shoot the 139's @ a higher velocity but not nearly as good accuracy results as the load i developed... 2733 is fine for me as long as i'm getting .25 MOA, i'm more concerned with accuracy, and i'll get a few more rounds out of the Shilen Ultramatch...
