I;m with davewilson on this one.

I use a 270 AM w/150gr Nosler Ballistic Tips @ 3500. Good practice for big game except I switch to 169.5 WC. Different clicks and a lot less windage problems.;)
I may be the slowest guy on the mountain . . . . but . . . . I'm on the mountain!

From the air

I've had great performance with guided "J Dams" Claymore mines can be substituted .
How does it profit a man if he gains the whole world but loses his soul?

Ironworker, in my experience the only problem with the J-dam is the time delay between seeing the P dog colony and killing the dog. Those jets sure take a long time to scramble and get to altitude. But at least the rounds per kill ratio is very low ;)
I used to re-load but now I "hand-load".
