According to my software with the 120 gr partions you will be around 2300 fps at 400 yards
and with the 115 BT you will be Around 2350 at 500 yards
This is assume a muzzle velocity of 3100 which is fast
My daughters gun only gets 2900 fps.
Every gun is going to be different
you need to pick one or two and give them a try with a few different powders
We have had very good luck with the nosler accubonds and the BTs so we stick with them
I have no experiance on how the partions work on game
Have you used the 115 BT on Elk? I like that bullet for Deer, but figured it a little soft for Elk.
The 120NP is a great bullet & accurate in my Sendero
You will not make peace with the Blue Coats, you are free to go.
