Re: 400 yard deer bullet.

The 95gr BT will be over 2000fps at 400 yards, which will give good, reliable expansion without blowing up. That's what I'd go with.

Re: 400 yard deer bullet.

95s to 100s, like others have said. Different rifles like different loads. Try a few and see what your rig really likes. Keep a data book and make judgement for yourself. I know you were wanting a clear cut answer, but often, each particular rifle likes something distinct. Wish it was that easy. Good luck.

Re: 400 yard deer bullet.

I used a Hornady 100gr .243 BTSP on two deer this fall with Excelent results. at 100 YDS .7 inch groups at 300 YDS 2.15 inch groups. Also just FYI on antelope my son used the same rifle with Sierra 85gr. HPBT Gameking and DRT Antelope doe at just under 400 yds clean through lung shot & was as fast a kill as I have seen with any rifle or CAL.
