    .260 120 NBT and 123SSt

    Any pet loads loads these are 2 pills my local has in abundance. I have my serious hunting load sorted with back up supplies but were going to have a Sunday on rabbits ferals and fallow powders on hand are rl26 and superperformance and 2206h . Can check the local if theirs any others recommended. May be a silly question but are these lighter pills less jump sensitive because with the throat on my rifle my 142s/143s are jumping 50thou at mag length so I imagen these smaller guys will have alot of jump to have anything in the neck i dug deep last night and think @ryansonghurst had the 123sst going very well I was actually hoping for some really light vmaxs for these pesties but availability is king these days. Il be giving it a go regardless but time saved with advice is invaluable.

    Cheers

    120s BTS not sensitive to jump in my sako or Blaser. I use RL19 behind them. The are a good fallow pill. Penetrate well and open up.
    This was a two for one shot in some fog and mist at about 60 meters with the little 120 bts from a Swede.

    Interesting, ive had the same once with a 140 NBT from a 7mm08. Got a chamois and kid with one bullet at 200m. Was surprised to find a seconddead animal when i got over there. Never saw the small one. I wonder if they instinctively stand behind with their hilar zones lined up to the predator.
