Give the Sierra 140 gr BTSP a serious look. I loaded these in my Dad's 260 IMP for fireforming loads. .5 MOA 5-shot groups. Good enough to shoot 500 yard F-Class matches with.

I've used the 129 SST with good results on elk out to 400 yds., and bighorn @ about 300, and the 140 A-Max on a goat @ 325. But these r out of an XP-100 hangun with a 16" barrel.
