Thanks for your input,
If your BAR shoots well I would stay with it .
I always loved the BARs but some of them just would'nt shoot.
So I would recomend the 130s and a reduced load.
I found that the 130gr bullets worked best on deer and 150gr bullets worked
I'm not sure but I think that remingtion loads what they call " managed recoil"
ammo and it is in 3 levels of energy.
