I too use the Hornady® Light Magnum® 265gr FP. It is an EXCELLENT BULLET!Mikey said:MRC - that Nosler bullet is a handgun bullet and may not give you the success you should get from the 444 loadings.
If you want to stay in that same weight range, Hornaday makes a 265 gn bullet specifically for the 444 that has worked very well for a lot of Triple 4 shooters on this forum. You can come pretty close to 2300'/sec with the 265. I don't know if the 250 Nosler would hold together at those velocities. HTH. Mikey.
The same question was asked on the Nosler Forum and the Nosler Rep's reply was:MRC said:
Good luck..JaycoThe 250 gr. PHG works quite well at 444 Marlin velocities 2200 to 2300 fps.
Weight retension is 85 to 90% with deep penetration. don't hesitate to use on elk at reasonable ranges.
