    Just ordered a Red Hawk Rifle in 280 AI for my 13 year old son. The kid wants to load a light bullet as he want the least amount of recoil. Has anybody used the 110 Barnes 284 cal? Need a load for deer and antelope. Whats your load and how did it perform?
    Thanks

    I use them in my 7 08. They are doing about 3000 fps. I have shot a red spiker (about the size of a mule deer) at 150 yds with them. He was quartering away, shot went in through the back of the ribs and came out in front of the off shoulder. The deer ran about 50 - 100 yds before falling.
    I was happy with the performance.
