    My T3 shoots 190gn Sub-X (very accurate) and 168 ELD-M supersonic no problem so it shouldn't be an issue with a standard 1:10.
    Experience. What you get just after you needed it.

    I only use them at close range (<60 yards) and when I know I have a clean shot at the CNS. They are slow killers if you rely on heart/lung shots.

    Yeah that is along the lines of what I have heard elsewhere. The Lehigh stuff @tikka uses in his 300blk seems to be a much better subsonic killer but you need at least a 1:8 twist to stablise those projectiles.

    If they shot as well in my rifle as the Sub-X I probably would.
