Re: Homework on 260 loads

I actually get almost 2900 but the scary accuracy was at 2825 or so.

Re: Homework on 260 loads

I shoot the 140 a-max out of my 260ai with h4831 at 2930fps. Last year I shot a large buck at 609yards. Last week I shot 2 mule deer bucks, one at 305 yards, the other at 275 yards. All were one shot kills and none of them went over 30 yards.

One bullet last week failed to exit but this one struck the near shoulder in the area where the joint is, the heart of that deer was literally split in half. Bone fragment was all over in the chest cavity. The bullet never hit the oposing chest wall, and only small frages were recovered.

The other was hit just behind the bone and only broke ribs exit hole was about 1.5".

If conditions are right I would take shots on deer out to 750 with confidence.
