So I have a new Borden rifle with nightforce scope. My son is 9 years old and wants to get his first deer. I need a light recoil load. I have 120 grain ballastic tips using lightest imr4350 load possible. Minimium powder charge. 1.5 MOA but that won't matter on a buck at 100 yards. I wanted any thoughts on lightest recoil load possible or am I there? Rifle had pad and muzzle break but he is a little shy when it comes to recoil and he wants to use this rifle so I thought we would give it a try. Any ideas on light loads?? Low powder charge and light bullet right?

About 10 or so years ago I asked the same question. The answer...and it worked FANTASTIC!!! 120gr Balistic tips, 50 g H 4895. I think I ws down around 2700 FPS.

When I had this load zeroed at 200, my FULL load using 150 NBT's was dead on at 300.

Good luck,
Tod
