    I am looking for a light target load to use in mbar competitions this spring. In the past I've used a particular 150gr load that has been quite good. I also know of a couple 180gr loadings that are quite accurate.

    I do not have any in the 125gr range though, which is my next goal. I like the idea of the lighter round, less recoil. I use Finn M39s and we shoot 50 rounds @ 100 yards in these events. I just got 100 rounds of Sierra 125 SP Prohunters (.311 dia.) to begin with.

    Anyone done any experimenting in this area, and have results they would like to share?
