My supply of 240 grain cast bullets is very low and I would like to reserve them for my standard load using 5.0 grains of HP38 for plinking and target shooting. I have an ample supply of Rem 240 grain SJHP's and would like to develop a hunting load running about 1100 fps give or take. The primary firearm will be a FA M97 with a 5 1/2 inch barrel but they might also be used in S&W M624's with a 4 and 6 1/2(?) inch barrel. I have the following powders that might be suitable: Universal, HS6, Longshot, 2400, AA9, Power Pistol, Lil Gun, W296, and IMR4227. If anyone else has gone down this path I would love to hear about their findings and/or their favorite loads. With all of the shortages and price gouging I'm just trying to save some time and money by using someone else's research. I also have some Hornady 240 grain XTPs that I could use, but figured the Rems would probably work better at my target velocity. Intended game is deer and smaller feral hogs. Thanks in advance for your input.
