    Cool Which Supper Bullet

    I'm going to harvest me a buffalo come November. I've bought myself a 300 Winchester Magnum model 200 for the job made by Steven's. These are Antelope Island of Utah breed which is a small size.
    Now which bullet and load would be good if not best to use. It'll be about a 100 yard shot. I'm keeping the hide and the meat. I hope my freezer is big enough to hold it all.
    So does anyone have any suggestions?
    Deano

    P.S. Here's the web sight and other info of where I'm going:

    Nosler 180 or 200gr Partitions, Speer 180 or 200 TBBC's, Barnes 180 or 200gr TSX's. Any of them will do the job, and at 100yds, even 6" groups will let you put one in the boiler room. The question really is which one will your rifle prefer? You might start with IMR 4831 and 7828 for the 180's, or RE22 and H1000 for the 200's.

    I highly recommend Past Magnum Recoil Shields for bench work, load development, and practice. I might even consider wearing it under my hunting coat, but it is well known that I do not enjoy heavy recoil, & don't need another round of back surgery.

    I shot a moose with a 308 165 gr barnes X at 75 yards running angling away. The bullet lost one petal on the spine and went 54" through the moose. I would try that for big critters. They usually group a couple of inches right or left than other bullets because of their increased length. Gianni

    I've been on that island a few times and you sure wont have any problems finding one. And while they didn't look as big as the ones in Yellowstone, we got near a few that sure didn't look real small. They seem to grow as they get closer and start to fidget. You'll be tripping over antelope too.
    And any of the ones named by versifier should work fine.
