"Why?"
"Because it is a better load with more energy and velocity..etc.."

I looked at him and said.. "For serious work I carry the Speer 200gr HP moving out the barrel at 1200fps. I don't think I am giving up anything to the 10 and my bullet is bigger in diameter. "
He looked at me, looked at my GC, and said "Never mind."
What is your recipe for a 1,200 FPS 200 gn gdhp? Inquiring minds want to know.
