gps shot with Model 70 Carbine and Remington Model 7 Unbelievable devastating load for medium deer. Have killed over 70 deer with this bullet in my Model 70 and Model 7. Most have dropped in their tracks. Never have I had to look more than 45-50 yards for a dead deer.
I'm not responsible for any of the load data above used in your guns.
Shoot straight, or shoot often.
