Re: Model 81 in 300 Savage Ammo Questions

my first post.

i am interested in reloads; not that i can reload, but those that i might purchase from private or commercial sources. i am searching for the lightest load that will reliably cycle the action. i am thinking 125=140 grain bullet at about 2300 fps.

any resources?
