Do any of you shoot this in a Contender? If so, what bullet in your opinion works best on deer and other game about the same size. I have some Partitions and a lot of Ballistic Tips and plenty of different powders. I just got it, like new and put a Burris 3x12 BP scope on it. Can't wait to get some range time. I got 150 loaded rounds with 85 grain Ballistic Tips. Some were loaded in 2002 and the necks are cracked on some of them, on new, un formed brass.
I think this will be just a little better on Varmints and small deer than for flatter trajectory than my 6.5 JDJ. Photos posting tonight.
