Re: WhiteTail Bullet
Anything over 165 grains you will be handicaping your self. Heavier bullets will not expand on deer size game, and they hurt your velocity and trajectory.
My rifle for long range southern (NC/SC) bean field is a 300 RUM. I handload the Speer 165 Grand Slame. It works for me.
I've found out the hard way, that at long range, you need to put it on the ground. That takes shot placement and a reliable expanding bullet. Never sacrifice bullet expansion for better BC, that is why good made range finders!
