There isn't an animal on this continent that those bullets wouldn't work on.
I would have to disagree !! There are a lot of animals that "ANY" 130gr bullet would be
to light for no mater how fast it was.
Yes , it would probably kill them "eventually" but would not stop them in there tracks.
I have tried ultra high velocity ,light weight bullets and came away swearing never to
go there again based on the end results.
I tested the 140gr .284 bullets to almost 3900ft/sec in a loooong barreled 7 STW,
accuracy started to go away after 3650ft/sec "but it was flat."This included all of
barnes offerings in this weight and I found the barnes had a very narrow expansion
Most bullets start at 1800ft/sec and go to 2800 for optimum performance .
Also the ballistic coefficient for this bullet is .340 (Per Barnes) and the case mouth
falls in front of the Ogive/Shank junction when loaded to SAAME COAL of 3.340.
So thats why I dont like Federals loading, But in america we can still think and voice
our opinion and that's what I was doing .
No offence, and none taken
