    I’m new to reloading and have a 28, I’ve been trying to think of which projectile to use with the rifle. I came across a good deal on some A Frames, but have search high and low to see what the synopsis on the bullet is on this forum. What do y’all think? I appreciate your time.

    Not likely to be your most accurate load, BC not the best, but terminal performance is as good as any.

    Very close for close to mid range hunting of large game, I have a good friend that uses then in his 7 rum with great results. Will always hold together even at crazy high impact velocities. Should be a good one at normal hunting ranges.

    Thanks for the responses, normal ranges being inside of 600 yards?

    Looks like it can be started at roughly 3200 fps-and still be traveling 2000 fps at 600. I'd use it without worry.
