    Just posted my gun for sale. BUT--I loaded 100gr Nosler Partitions with 67.2 gr. of IMR 4831. 1 3/4" high at 100, 2" low at 300. Took it to New Zealand in 2004 and shot 1 pig, 7 goats, 1 tahr, 1 red stag, and 27 wallabys in a week. Stag at 300m, tahr at 250m, DRT, dropped like rocks. Took it to Namibia and S. Africa in 05 and took a long list. Went to E. Cape in SA in 2009 and dropped a black Wildebeest in his tracks at 150yd, cape bushbuck DRT at 210, and an old blesbuck ran after taking a shot at 100yd. You probably know the caliber well enough! Good hunting.
