    Im wanting to tinker with some different loads that would be complete opposites. Id like to tinker with some high speed rounds for 300 yard or less yotes and a heavy high coefficient round for long range. It will be out of a 20" 1 in 10 twist barrel. Ive shot 150's 168's and 180's alot but those were all factory rounds and im wainting to play with handloads

    46 grs IMR 4895 and a 125 Nosler ballistic tip does 3000 fps out of my 21 1/2" barrel and is the black death on deer out to a little over 300 yards, BANG FLOP. The speer 125 TNT ought to work with this load and vaporize on impact. Never shot a yote.
