And the Hornady factory loads shoot accurate enough that I don't even hand load for it anymore.Its been a while, but I've loaded it in the 444 using 44 Rem mag load data..Has anyone used the 200gr. It offers a Muzzle Velocity of 1250 fps.This new production round is high performance ammunition featuring a patented, reverse-taper jacket design. Video Library. Killed the deer just fine, but I wouldn't want to hit one in the shoulder with the 200 after that experience.

After the movie was released, the Seasoned shooters compare handgun hunting to bow hunting. Or should a heavier bullet be used?I have use it in 240 gr in 44 and 158gr in 357mag on a lot of deer and hogs with good results fla deer are a lot smaller than ny deerMy Marlin shoots the 240's best. After two years I tried several different bullets and the only one that was worse was some bulk Winchester 240gr SJHP that didn't expand over bore diameter on a doe at 25yds. If the .44 Mag is too much to handle, shooters may elect to use a .44 S&W Special, a smaller cartridge that has less recoil. It expands just as well as the 240 but with more bullet shank behind it. Once the XTPs were introduced we went to the 240s and stayed there. Welcome Guest. The slead pulled pretty easy I am glad he didn't weight 200 lbIt could have been shot placement.

It’s slightly more expensive than the Remington, but also more powerful. I normally shoot 270 Deep Curl or 280 LFN out of my rifles... thought the shorter bullet would fit the magazines better...and perhaps the little Ruger may like them as well.

A friend of mine shot a whitetail doe a few years ago with one out of a marlin rifle. I normally reload heavier bullets for hunting... Will be shooting them in Ruger 77/44 where OAL is an issue with some loads... looks like the FTX will be good for that when case is trimmed to shorter length as suggested.The FTX bullets are pretty fragile. The buck was down within 15 yds - absolutely nothing wrong with that but, if you are worried about the performance of the bullet I will tell you the same dang thing I tell everyone else - go to either a Keith style or a LBT cast slug at or near 240 - 250 gns moving at about 11-1200'/sec and you should not then worry about bullet performance. But you do need two holes and complete pass through of the vitals your aiming for.

I will be using the Hornady 158 grain XTP in the revolvers and 180 grain Hornady XTP in the rifle. the Hornady bullets are better and the Sierra bullets start to fail if they hit heavy bone.I agree with the others, you need to bump up the velocity if your going to use the XTP 240 grain bullets. Which one do I want.

Right on the edge of the creek. on WT deer? So i had to move on to 45 cal version 300gr. Find a Retailer {gallery.thumbs[galindex].description}} Previous +-Next.
