    I've used both 120 and 140 in mine, I found that the 120's were just not as emphatic and I've had numerous pass-throughs with animals traveling before dropping - even after hitting bone.
    The 140's are my choice by far, nothing goes far if it does not drop on the spot.

    I use 120grn for my young fella, 50grn 2209 in a model 7 pig and they shoot really well. Nothing has run away.

    If you are keen to move the 120’s on, I have a lad who would put them to good use.
