    Here in Indiana regulations on cartridges for deer hunting have been loosened over the past few years. My neighbor and I have been thinking of how we could get a bolt rifle in the woods. We want to keep it relatively fast and we are thinking we would like to get a 180-200 grn bullet to work. He must have been thinking alot and after all he is a BR guy. He already made a test case pretty easily.
    Wondering if anyone knows of anyone who has tried this combo. Looking for any info.

    Thanks, Grin

    So long as the cartridge develops enough energy to humanely put the animal down, go for it.

    I think you'll find though that the challenge is going to be making a rifle feed this case reliably. It can be done, but prepare for a bit of work.

    Good luck.
