    LE or Double Tap Ammo? Need opinions

    Hello, I was wondering what I should use in my GG. I plan on getting a weaver 1x3x20 scope on it and using it for mostly deer, occasional hogs, and maybe bear one day. But I still haven't made a decision on what ammo to use. I hunt in close, so do not plan on shooting over 100 yds.

    Hornady LE
    Double tap 300gr HP
    Double tap 405gr SP

    Will I get good penetration with the the 300gr HP ammo? Does the HP knock game down better than the 405gr or LE?

    Which one out of the 3 and why?
    thanks

    Aint shot my gvide gun a lot but the LEs seem to do a good job on deer.

    I just touched off 20 LEs a couple of days ago, hard to imagine any deer, hog or black bear walking away from a good hit.

    maybe I will go with the LE, plus they may be easier to find in ammo stores.

    A year or so ago I borrowed a 45-70 rifle. I had always wanted to try one on deer. I own a small piece of property in Tennessee that is a lot like the woods I saw in Penn.
    The guy gave me some mixed ammo. Winchester 300 or 325 gr hollow points and some remington 405 gr.
    My 13 year old daughter shot them both. I was amased that here was a rifle my kid could handle and still do so much damage.
    I hit a fairly good size doe going away at a hard angle with the hollow point. It might have been a nosler bullet.
    The damage was massive to say the least angleing the complete chest area breaking 4 ribs, one shoulder and leaving a blood trail a pup could follow. I am selling my .270 and as soon as I do a 45-70 will take it's place.

    I have only shot the 405's in the 45/70 ( not mine) I like them.. But I am sure the LE's would kill just about anything short of a spaceship ..

    I guess the 405 would give you an edge in brush also, might not deform as much as a HP if you hit a branch,
