Ok guys,we are headed in the other direction now.Never did reach 3K fps with light bullets. Though I found the most accurate load fired in this rifle yet. A 95 gr JHP from Everglades went 2500 fps and about 1/2 inch at 50 yards. So I ordered up some GT bullets 185 and 200 gr bullets along with some 180 XTP's as well as Rem 180 SJHP. Honestly it will be hard to find something better than the 158 XTP on top of a stout load of Lil'Gun but this is all in the name of science. This is how we teach our children the scientific method,while preparing for deer season. So give me some recipes for your favorite heavy bullet loads. Right now we have Lil'Gun, 2400, HS-6, BE-86, 800X, Titegroup, and CFE Pistol available. I will pick up some 296 when I can find it and am interested in trying FS-11 and Enforcer/4100.Both of those seem promising for heavy bullet loads.
