I'm thinking of trying these with 100 grain 777. Which grain would you shoot 250 or 300? Also do i need a special tip to load these to not damage tip or not?

You should be happy with it. I have heard good things about the hornady sst. I yes the same powder and love my optima. I wouls use formats tip for loading just become its formed for that tip.

With 100 grain of powder I would try 250 first. I didn't realize I had that many misspelled/wrong words in that last post. Oh well. The 300 will get u more nock down but will drop more. If your going to use it on anything bigger than the typical tn white tail then maybe the 300 would be your best bet. Shoot Em both see what your gun likes.
