Re: .244 Remington 722 1-12 twist
Like the post above,I also used a 243 several seasons for deer.I shot Hornady's 75 gr HP with H450 (no longer available).As I recall,I was shooting the 75s a little above 3200 fps.The farthest shot I took with the gun was about 200 yds,all the deer were shot in the chest cavity and turned everything forward of the diaphram to jello.I never had an exit hole,even on the close ones (less than 100 yds.)I cant remember any of them taking more than a couple of steps after the shot.Just my experience.
Im having a 6mmAI built this coming year and am using the 1-12 twist primarily for 70-80 gr bullets.Its more of a varmint gun but I wouldnt hesitate to use it on deer out to 300 yds or so with the right bullet.
