so far the lightest bullet weight i can find is the barnes-x 270gr don't know much about this bullet,but i don't want to get into the 300 & up grain ball's because most are just your basic flat nose bullet's

just curious, what are you planning on hunting with this gun? Im not being smart, I was just sitting here thinking if the LIGHTEST bullet they offer is 270 gr, what in the US would you hunt with it?

Barnes sells Spire Point bullets from 210 gr. to 300 gr., Hornady sells a 270 gr. SP~ 300 gr BTSP, Sierra sells a 300 gr. SBT, Speer sells 235 gr SP~ 270 gr BT ~385 gr. SP, Nosler sells a 260 gr. 300 gr., and Swift sells 250 gr. SS ~ 270 gr.SS. Good luck.

Dang it all, I can see it now everytime you pick up the gun to go shoot she's smilling cause she's getting even for your last "mistake", Some gals are just really slick
