Thanks, mattsbox99, for the Hornady 225 LeverEvolution suggestion. I'll certainly give them a try. Back in 2007's Deer Season; I killed two Deer with one shot from my Ruger 77/ .44 Magnum rifle. A large Doe was moving about 50 yards from my stand, but I failed to see there was another Deer on her opposite side, as she was in some brush & down in a small hollow. The bullet went through the Doe and through the smaller Deer.Davers-
Thats my favorite load for my 99/44, I put 5 shots into 1.5"@100 yards with that load pretty regularly. The Hornady 225gr LeverEvolution matches that accuracy but that bullet has a better BC for longer ranges.
