    Better off with soft 130s like a sierra. Open up quick and work well on goats and lighter deer.

    Mostly run 130gn Speer Hotcor or 130gn Hornady Sp at 3100 and they just flat out work. Bloke name of Johnny Bissel shot hundreds of deer with the Hornady 110hp, but: he loaded them back a bit at 3100fps, he found they killed well often getting pass through on average deer, my normal go with a lighter pill is to make them go fast as, new plan - have played with the 110hp, starting them at 3100 ,sub 1/2 moa and holds that at 300yds, gonna try them on bigger hoppers before looking at deer though and it will be as always: behind the shoulder or in the neck.

    Neither of my 270's will shoot the Bergers without burning powder and pills to find "the load" otherwise I'd be the VLD all day.

    there might be two types of hornady 110hps.....cause the varmit flat based ones are definately a good option on deer....
    75/15/10 black powder matters

    Might be placement and not running them flat out makes the difference, 3100 vs 3400, he was professionally culling and guiding and shot big deer and small, his mate was using them on stags and Tahr - I have a couple hundred of them and they shoot silly good, but won't try them on anything of size until my own eyeballs confirm, just so happens that in my Browning they hold the same windage as 130 Hotcor and 150 SST, so they'll make a good dual load in any case. Would give 110 AB's a go if they could be found, a bit scarce and pricy though. Let me replicate 25/06 that would.

    the 110grn hpfb is no longer listed....there is a match projectile with cannalure and another but not the old ones.... you fellas big enough and ugly enough to make up your own minds,just be cautious and PLEASE have another round on hand incase it does turn to crap.....my experience with them left bad taste in mouth that hasnt deminished over time...for wallabies they are awesome....

    Micky when people ask me what I think some unsuitable projectile will go like, I tell them to try it on a Grizzly Bear or Cape Buff.
    You'll find out if it works.

    Thanks all, starting to get a feel of it. Another practical consideration is, having a quick look at the projectile list at Gunworks, they only list two options in 110gn and both Barnes. Why would I pay twice what I can get 130s for? There’s obviously cheaper options but it becomes academic when there is no real world advantage when comparing price, performance, results etc.
    That’s fine, I may still scratch that itch for curiosity’s sake. After all, that’s what happens when you head down the rabbit hole of reloading.
    Look forward to more comment. I have stocks of the following powder, AR2209, 2213sc, 2206h, and W760. Faster burning for lighter bullets?

    110grn barnes......interesting to use,as expected lower recoil but preformance is rather vanilla....they will do nothing a 130-140-150-160-170grn cup n core wont do a whole heap better...straight line penertration is the ONLY real advantage they have,but a heavier cup n core will still reem right through so its academic really.
    bog std hornady interlocks are a good cheap,reliable,accurate projectile that kill just fine n dandy.
