Nice work on the gun and the buck! Congrats! What kind of velocity are you getting with that 140 grain PT?
Just over 2400fps. I can go hotter but that works out to 1000ftlbs at 350 yards which is farther than I can shoot in the current hunting spot. This load is so accurate I can make precision shots as far as I can shoot. Dropping to 125gr Partitions lets me go to right at 2700fps if needed. This barrel is a 1:8 so the 140s are a perfect match.
