    The Universe is a cruel, uncaring void. The key to being happy isn't a search for meaning. It's to just keep yourself busy with unimportant nonsense, and eventually, you'll be dead. -Mr Peanutbutter

    I was going to say that. Good cheap reliable bullet. Just not very fashionable at the moment.

    If you can find them.
    120 SGK are pretty cheap, accurate and work well one deer if you have any left over from your practice. Other than that try some varmint bullets 100 to 120 gr they usually are cheaper than game bullets
    If power matters, recoil will be a necessary evil

    Those 145 speers are lethal. Sierra prohunters are epic too
