Re: 250 grain spire points

I currently shoot the lever evolution 200 grain spire points in my model 8. Are there any 250 grain spire points that anyone uses ? I'm wondering if they are too long for the case ?

Recoil energy is simply the free recoil velocity squared times one-half the mass.So basically Mass times acceleration A 300 savage with a 180 grain and a 35 Remington with a 200 grain are not much apart at all. The 300 is a lot faster and with 20 grains separating them id be surprised if there was m...
