I shoot Hornady FPB's 350 grain em overall, pushing them with 100 grn White hots...... took both of these deer with them.

The problem in America is not that ungodly people have said yes to ungodly things, but rather that Godly people have refused to say "no" to ungodly things.

I shoot the Hornady SST 300 gr with 110 gr of 777 powder. Groups great and has plenty of knock down power. I killed 6 deer with that load this past season and had one go about 20 yds a nd fall the rest fall in their tracks.

My brother in law had one and shot 250 gr shockwave and 150 gr of pellets. It shot good.
I pray to fish until my dying day. When it comes to my last cast, I then most humbly pray, when in the Lord's safe landing net & I'm at peace that in His mercy I be judged big enough to keep.
