Anyone ever shoot deer with the Sierra 110gr Pro Hunter? I know they don't make it anymore but latched onto some after getting back a 270 the other day. With supplies few and far between thought I might as well as use them. Have developed a load using this bullet with 51.5 grs Big Game Win LR primer in a FC case giving 2947 fps out of a Rem 700 22 in barrel. Kept the speed down so as not to come apart too quick and getting half inch group. Will do a jug test to try it out. Remember reading that JOC said he used a 120 gr bullet years ago in his 270 for whitetails placing behind the shoulder in the lungs with good results. Hopefully 10 grs less won't make too much difference. Will see. Dan.
