It’s very accurate in my Rem 40-XB with Retumbo at about 2950 fps.

When I used them I loaded with H870 around 78-79 grains and 2950 fps. Now I would try R26 and 8133, several others would work well H1000, 7977, VV565, Magnum and more in that range. I only used them at shorter ranges and they were more frangible than I cared for and not consistent, for shots over 300 yards the bullet may settle down more. They did drop deer quickly so can't complain about that.

Appreciate the reply , I do have h870 so I'll give it a try. They can't be any worse than the 160 gr Sierra gameking for holding together just got to keep them in the ribs like most Sierra's .Mb
