I'll be loading it up in .308 Winchester. Barnes states that velocity will be somewhere between a minimum of 3050 FPS and a maximum of 3350 FPS. I'll be shooting out to about a maximum of 300 yards. Shot placement may be less than ideal. Deer in my area top out at about 150 lbs. unless you come across an absolute monster. Most are around 100-125 lbs. If anyone has any first hand experience with this bullet I'd appreciate some input.
