    140g NBT or AB, 68.5g RL-22, RP case, Fed 215, 3.350", Crony says 3250fps. Very accurate out of my factory rem 700. Both groups at 100 yards were under .5", and both groups I shot at 400 yards were 1" and 2" respectively. SHould put the hurt on deer/coyotes out to 500 very easily. Get there pretty quick and flat to!!

    162 gr hornandy bt, 61 gr IMR 4831, CCI mag primer, RP case slower than a 140 but the good BC shoots fairly flat. Accurate as well shot out of a browning abolt. Fairly cheap bullets that have worked well on deer/elk.
