    Dont know howta put up onea those poll thingies, we gots a choice here guys, anythin from 170 grains ta 210 grains.

    Will be solid and hollowpoint, but what weight would ya PREFER? After all tha fun number crunchin, there aint NO accuracy difference overall in a variety of guns used for testin, from 170 ta 210 grains, and they all penetrate jus about tha same, sos ya want some speed and powder capacity, or does ya want less powder and SLOWER?

    Speak up cause once tha decisions made thats whats bein shipped!

    Well, I'd say 170 to keep the point of impact as close to that of a round ball as possible.

    I dont know about the poll, but 200 gr seems to be the best all around choice in my guns...It is too bad the velocity couldnt be increased to where a hollow point type could be used for expansion purposes(expansoin not being as important as where the bullet strikes):evil:

    Pure lead with this hollowpoint will open at 750fps.

    Why not a 180 gr slug with a hollow base?

    Better yet, 200 gr rnhp with a slight hollow base to easily upset in rifling:scrutiny:
