Fine shoot'n, Craig! Good to hear a report on that 275gr speer DC. I just recently acquired a SRH in 480, so I ordered some brass and bullets last week. I decided to try out the 275 DC - felt it would work great on southern whitetails. Do you know what the MV is on that load you're shoot'n? I wasn't planning on hotrod'n the 480, but want to make sure I have enough velocity for the bullet to perform correctly.

Very cool. My brother and I have been improving our family land yearly. From maintaining roads, targeted planting, planting oaks, and game management, we've improved the quality of the land and the whitetails on it.

Good for you and great shot!

Redhawk, thanks and good luck to you as well. KRal, they were factory loads. I haven't had time to reload in the past year or so. Speer claims 1450 MV. They are snappier then the Hornady 325 factory XTPs. They definitely hit harder on my steel plates then the XTPs do. When I get back to reloading I may try loading these bullets in the 475 cases and see if I can't bump them up to the 1600 range. Will be curious to see how they hold up on a larger animal.

PsTan, I've been doing my research and trying to put myself in the animals world figuring out what they need and want. It's extremely gratifying knowing I'm improving their habitat and providing for some great hunting experiences for my family and friends.
