Thanks - will be getting that one.

I disagree with Wieland's assumptions about using heavier bullets than 150 gr. I have shot 195 gr. bullets and out to 200 yards there is no sign of instability.

Norm and all,
Havn`t been able to find a copy on the rack anywhere so havn`t read it. I agree with you Norm. My "go to " load for the 300 Sav is a a 180 gr Core-lokt at around 2400. It doesn`t get much better than that for a deer stopper in their tracks.Taken several with that combo with 99 Savages out to 200 yards. Loaded some also with 190 gr Silvertips that I use in my 303 savage loading. That also makes a potent, accurate combo. Don`t know what experience the writer has with hunting situations but would not hesitate to take a 200 yard shot with either of those.

Not that I have a dog in this hunt, so to speak, but I am just pleased to see mention of one of our/my fave .30 cal rounds in a recent mass-market gun magazine.

Thanks for providing your own experience with heavier-than-150 grain bullets, Norm & Joe.
