Been toying with the idea of using the Hornady FTX (designed for the 30-30) in my 7.62x39, since my MV is usually around 2200-2300 out of that rifle. Yesterday, I was pleased to discover they are VERY accurate out of my gun, giving me sub-MOA groups at 100 yards and a MV of just over 2200 fps. using Reloder 7 powder. I was able to put 4 rounds inside a 1" square, using just a 4x scope. These should make a very effective deer bullet inside 200 yards - exactly what I was looking for. Incidentally, I loaded some in my .308 out of curiosity, and despite being launched at over 2700 fps., they were still very accurate from that rifle. I never expected that 160 FTX to be such an accurate bullet, but at least from my two .30-cal Savage rifles, it sure is. If you're loading for 7.62x39, it could be a good one for you to try. I know they also make a 140-grain version, and at some point I'm going to give that one a go as well. I should be able to push that to 2300 fps. out of my bolt action.
