My favorite load is a 300 gr. Hornady XTP ahead of 21 gr. of Win. 296 and a magnum primer. It delivers 1500 fps in my 94 AE and shoots into about 2 inches at 50 yds with the original crude sights. I did put a scope on the rifle just to see how accurate the loads I had been using were at 100 yds. With the scope I could get accuracy about the same at 100 yds as the iron sights would get me at 50.
