I use XS BigDot. I love them. Very accurate when i take my time with them. Yet serve even better by the bedside!
I carry the 135gr corbons. I picked up some 180gr Hornady XTP and a pound of Longshot today at Schupbechs. Gonna work up a good hunting load. Hopefully i can report how those work before season ends!
That's what we like to hear. The 180-200gr XTP is just right for deer if you ask me... so long as you don't hit large bones (ribs, legs, spine are okay, shoulders are not). Wide, flat-nosed hardcast at high speed is extremely effective, as well, from what I hear. I will find out next season on that.
