Mine absolutely loves 240 grain cast and Remington 240 grain soft points and hollow points. I run 23 grains of H110 with all of them for a velocity of 1,750 fps. I have been shooting it a lot at 200-300 yards. Even at 300 yards, hitting 8 inch gongs are no problem with every shot. Mine is extremely accurate, as is the one I have in .357 magnum. I have several 5 shot groups at 100 yards that are under an inch and a half with the .357. That is phenomenal accuracy with 180 grain XTP's and 15 grains of H110. They come out at 1,500 fps. They are a hammer on hogs and deer.
