The "softest" with best expansion have been Rem. 240 gr.


Wvhitman has far more experience with this bullet than I do. I have only taken one deer with it but I was very impressed with its performance. This doe was shot at 70 yards using my 5" 44 mag BFR and a 240gr Remington SJHP over W296. The damage to the lungs was impressive. On the rib cage shot the entrance hole is on the left.







In my experience the Rem 240 grain SJHP mushrooms are very large and damage has to be seen to be believed. They would make an awesome self defense bullet as well.

When in doubt about bullet performance, listen to wvhitman.
