What is your barrel length?I hope to try them this year. 8208 and 200 TTSX's simply shoot amazing in this Whelen Gerry, at a steady 2900. I can't even find a good reason to mess with anything else, other than my supply of 8208 is limited!
Reality is any shooter of the Whelen back in the day would not believe what the old gal is capable of with newer powders. 2900 or more fps from a 200 gr bullet, 2800 or more from a 225 and 2700+ from a 250 gr without straining things. And the fact a 200 gr bullet (controlled expansion) does what the heavies did back then with a much nicer trajectory. Pretty cool.
