Re: 400 yard deer bullet.
I'm loading up some 95gn Nosler Ballistic Tips at this very moment. Thought I'd bring the Win 70 HVB in .243 Win. along for S & G (still taking my 700P in 7mRM). I found a great load about two weeks ago; 44.0gn of Viht N560/CCI BR2's and prepped/annealed RP brass. It's running 3114fps and printing in the .2's which is definately good enough for deer.
I took a groundhog about a month ago with this load at 580yds, he never heard the rifle go off! This load is a half a grain under max in Nosler #6 so it should be safe in most modern rifles. Good luck. JohnnyK.
