Re: New rifle, and would like some suggestions
This fall I'm going to take this rifle on a baited black bear hunt where the shots will be within 100 yards easily, so I'm going to use my handloaded 220gr rounds for that hunt.
I'm hoping my handloads will shoot decent enough in the rifle for this upcoming hunt, but in case they don't I'd like to back the bullet weight down to 165 - 190 bullets. After this bear hunt, in the future I could see taking this rifle out after deer, and possibly a moose or elk if I ever got the chance.
Some bullets just seem to shoot better than others and I'm really looking to see what's the next best choice if the 220gr handloads are all over the place. I've got some 180gr SST's, 165gr interlocks, and 168gr tipped triple shocks that will all be getting loaded up soon, but I'm trying to consider other options too.
