    Friend of mine and I loaded up some 150gr Remington (I think) softnose with 17.5 grains of IMR4427 and am planning on using it for deer. Was going to take The Boy out for his first deer hunt this weekend, but I guess that isn't going to happen now. :( Oh well... maybe I'll take him to the range and let him shoot the can and some Remington retail subbies that I bought and he will have a good time.

    Building one out for the wife's AR soon. Figured 300 would be a fun round for her. Hodgdon showed Lil'Gun or H110 as being good for all the possible loadings and Cabella's had a pound of H110 in stock yesterday so grabbed that. The plan is to use and adjustable gas block so I can feed the gas system what it needs to cycle correctly. Probably going to start with 150 grain round nose bullets for plinking and tuning.

    I use H110 at 18.5gr with 125gr Hornady SST for both plinking and hunting. I've killed a few smaller critters and a couple of pigs and dogs with it but no deer yet. Soon to change.

    I use almost the same load with 125gr Nosler BT and they've been deadly. Deer were all 60y or closer though.

    Friend of mine swears by the Barnes 110-grain TAC-TX for deer. I haven't found any around here to give 'em a try yet.

    I have caught them on sale at Midway for $23.17 a box a few times which coincided with a free shipping weekend.
