This is all good news, I will be shooting my rem. 700. I've taken quite a few Texas deer with it but now im in north MO so the deer are twice the size, so now I really want a quality round. I shot a 200+ lb. buck 2 yrs ago with it but it completely blew the heart up. I cant remember what round I used then probably just a cheap Remington... I've done more work on my deer rifle this yr than ever so I'm really lookin forward to this yr. and sniper, that is impressive compared to the .270 round. Can't wait to put a couple Hornady's down range, I'll post some groups later this week maybe!
