going black bear hunting with g20 load help
So i got my bear tag for this fall. I am planning on using 200 gr xtp. I am wondering what everyone has found to push them to the max. I have longshot and 800 x. What one pushes it faster? I have bluedot also but i don't think that will push as fast. I have a 6in barrel and want to hit over 1300 fps closer to 1400 would be better. I have all new brass and cci 300 primers.
Looking for ideas on loads being It's too cold out now (teens) to work up a max load that i will be using in 70 to 80 deg temps.
I will be hunting over bait so shot will be right around 20 yards.
Also i have been thinking about using hardcast also. beartooth if I did.
