Guns & Loads
I'm shooting Hornady XTP 240 with 100 grain of pyrodex and getting groups so tight at 50 yds that bullets are going through the same hole on consecutive shots. Someone told me that I need a much heavier bullet if I want to take 100+ yard shots. They said the heavier bullets hold more energy and will actually fly farther. A few questions: How far can I reasonably expect to shoot and KILL a deer with the 240 / 100 setup I use? If I want to zero at 100 yards, where should I site in at 50? PS: they also said that the 240 are a pistol bullet and NOT meant for rifes. IMO they WORK! But he was concerned about the energy factor. Trajectory tables / info? Any info would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!!!
