I grew up reading about W.D.M.Bell, Lysle and Pease. I am a believer in medium velocity bullets of good sectional density and bullets of either a wide meplat or good expansion.
This subject hits me close at home.
For a long time,I felt that 2300-2500FPS was the optimum for Whitetails.
I sold my 30'06 and adopted a 30/40,and my hunting load was 2500 FPS. It lived up to all my expectations.
I bought a 270Win,a while back.It grouped within a minute of angle at 2900FPS,but was woeful at 2700FPS. I sold it.
I now have a 300Savage,and am using PPB's at 2380FPS.I plan on using it this upcoming Fall.
I've never had any reason to give up on this opinion,but never tried to "sell" it either. It's good to see that I'm not alone.
