    Hello,
    Does anybody have any loads in the 150 grain bullet area they are willing to share. Currently I am shooting 130 accubonds but if I move up to the 140 or the 150 grain pills I can't find a decent load. Next fall I have a Alaskan Caribou hunt lined up and I want a bigger pill.

    Any info welcome.
    Aaron

    Sorry my mistake,
    This is for a Weatherby mag. My gun is the super big game master. The barrel is light weight. I bought this gun for my kid when he is old enough to use. Until then Dad will use it.
