I don't know what the FPS was,he didn't run it through a chrono.Gonna stick with N120,its a little harder to find,but i have a little bit of it,and 1 lb will last me a long time,with the amount of shooting i'll be doing.

In looking at Richards loads on the other board with about 70 gr he is averaging 2840 with N120. That's movin! and I really don't think I would want to trust a pistol rated bullet that fast on a deer. The 200 SST look good and you can grab them at any Walmart for 12 bucks for either 10 or 15 I can't remember. You would have to swap the sabots but you would have to buy sabots anyways right. I use them in my Knight 50 cal for the kids to shoot. Light bullet = little recoil and kids like that. I'm pushing them at 2100 fps and no problems at all taking deer with it. I've actually used them as close as 10 and far as 160 yards. The long shot only went 10 steps. They held up really well.

Looks like you are all set Cecil. I'm glad to hear this after all the BS you went through with your factory barrel. Keep us posted on the new setup when you get it and shoot it.
