RE: 245 grain vs 295 grain bullets?

If you have something under 60 yards, the bullets going to come apart. With the HP, it will do it a lot sooner.
295gr HP- 58 yards- Pyrodex RS.

RE: 245 grain vs 295 grain bullets?

100gr pellets

245gr AT = 8" low @ 200 *So they say*

295gr AT = 9" low @ 200.

Not a huge difference at all. Always go with the bigger bullet.
