    Posted this in the Hunting forum, but didn't get many responses.

    I have some powder that should be compatible with this bullet and I've been thinking about loading some up for Whitetail. I'm a little concerned about how light it is, even for a copper bullet. I want an exit wound.

    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.

    I had intended to test the 130 at some point but zero data on the 110.

    IMO a 110 made for the .300 blackout at .308 velocities won't give you the performance you are looking for. I also think if it did do well enough to be lethal which it likely will on broadside ribs shots, I would imagine an exit wound chance would be slim and none.
