I am very fond of 100 gr Sierra and Hornady Hollow points for plinking, with 30.5 grs of 2230. I also like Billy Marrs 168 gr gaschecks, I can look up the load later, have to go to work now. The TCU is really accurate. You'll love it.

7tc load data

what are you planning on doing with this gun? targets,deer ,ground hogs
coyotes. I generally use 120 gr. bullets and 748 powder for everything.
IF I plan on sillywets I use heavier bullets especially on the rams.Some times I use cast 154's as they seem to stick on the ram better.

Been using this load for 20 yrs. but start low and work up to match your own firearm. Hornady 139gr. sp over 26.5gr. of H322 with a cci 400 primer. In mine it prints under 3/4" @ 100. My son has taken whitetail with it over 200yds. without even thinking about it. Can't seem to get the 100s and 120s to print worth crap through my barrel, but it's not from lack of trying.
