Same can be said about literally any bullet thread, Berger, Hornady, Nosler, Barnes, take your pick. There is always someone that knows better and has to tell the next guy they are wrong. Some people just don't have the tact for civil conversation and the ability to disagree without being condescending, unfortunately.Funny how most hammer bullet threads turn into a fight.
As a general rule they don't mind jumping, so I don't think it will be a problem.Thank you Steve. That helps. I have been reading a lot and started to migrate towards the lighter side of the spectrum, (as you recommend)want to make sure things open up and are well over the 1800fps.
I am not sure how light i can go because my rifle is throated for berger 195's. Like a piercision. And i dont want a bunch of jump. When i get my oal figured out (cbto) ill send it to you and see what we can come up with.
I agree monos work great for close work busting Bone. LR hunting Bullets they are Not."I've heard", "I been told", "I've read" and so on.
I have 25 heads on the wall, all but one killed with ONE Barnes bullet each. All died within sight. The exception was an Elk killed with a 1.2 ounce .610 Maxi ball of my design from a flintlock who went 20 whole yards until he ran out of blood.
I believe any quality big game bullet will any animal if put in the boiler room. Any view to the contrary is internet BS.
they workI’m taking the 177 hh to Wyoming next week for elk. Running them at 2860 out of my short barrel 28n. Slow ya I guess. Accuracy is outstanding. Shots will be 600 and in, with the high likelihood of 100 yards. Right now it’s what I’m most confident in dinging smallish steel plates out to 500. Will report back in a few weeks.
