    I hunt deer with two calibers. My .243 loads are 100gr Sierra Game King SBT loaded with 35 grs of IMR 4320. That sends it out the muzzle aroung 2723 fps. My 30-06 loads are 165 gr Sierra Game King SBT loaded with 57 grs of IMR 4350. That travels aroung 2700 fps. Both keep a 3/4 inch group at 100 yards. I'm still playing with my .308 Savage model 99. I can't seem to get that perfect load yet.
