I'll look into it. I've been thinking about taking the old "range mule" out and pop a few deer with it this upcoming year. But we'll see. All the 185's I have are target models, not hunting models. So, I'm still not quite sure how I feel about using them on game. I guess I could always give it a shot...Literally.

    I personally dont have any experience with the 210's but i think they will stabilize in a 1:12 and i also think they would be awesome in an '06 with a stout charge of h4350

    I'm running a pretty stout charge of 7828 SSC (61-62gr) behind the Berger 185 VLD's in my 30-06 AI. 62gr still hasn't shown me any major pressure signs, yet I'm at a 103% load density. So I'm not real comfortable going much higher. LOL

    Thats an awfully arrogant assumption to make.

    I don't want to discuss anything in private with you.

    I'm not "trolling for your comments", I wish you would ignore all my opinions and I will ignore yours. We obviously have different points of view in this world.

    One of our differences of opinion is that I believe you have keyed in on me.Why I don't know.

    Relax, it's not about you...

    I was about to suggest the same thing.
