I have been trying to find time to develop a load for my 460xvr 8-3/8 to use this season on whitetail and hopefully a black bear. I have all the components I just dont have the time to do the job as of now. Can someone recommend a good factory load for the job? Options might be good as availability of loads is questionable. I am very pleased with the performance of the 200gr Hornady on paper but Im told they make a poor hunting round due to fragmentation.
Shots will likely be under 150yds on 100-120lb (FD) deer. Bear is secondary as Im not expecting it.

If they shot well in my gun, I'd use 200 gr. Hornadys. Don't believe everything you hear. They'll do just fine on deer and I wouldn't hesitate to use them on bear either.

I like the 200gr Hornady load. They shoot about 3" 100 yard groups with a 2x scope from my gun. Probably do better if the shooter had better eyesight.....

Only shot one deer with them so far, but the bullet had excellent penetration and was not recovered.

Wear some electronic ear protection. I still have tinnitus from firing a couple shots with no ear protection.....3 years ago.
