I think it does it's best with 200-225 gr bullets. A person on another board had to have some 250 gr rn Hornaday's for his so I split what I had.
Actually, this is it. I figured the cartridge had a sweet spot with bullet weight. I scored a case of 200 grain Winchester factory ammo, but needed a platform to utilize some components I have that are collecting dust. When I have some once-fired commercial brass, I even have some 250 grain Hornady interlocks on deck, for comparison.
