I have a Pre-64 Mod. 70 Featherweight 30-06 being semi-customized and it will be done soon. I am ordering a Brockman's pop up receiver sight for it and when it is not wearing the scope I will stuff 5 of those 200 grain Barnes XTS flat based bullets in it. I contacted Barnes Bullets and they said the bullet was built with a 1-10 twist rate in mind so I should be just fine.
I will start with WW cases and H4350sc. I am hoping to get some where between 2,550 and 2,600 fps mv out of the 22" barrel. This will be my super duper big beast killing ought six load! I used to use the 200 grain Nosler Partition and had good moose and caribou results.
Do any of you have any experience making gut piles with that 200 grain .308 bullet? If so I would appreciate hearing about it. I am familiar with the 180 grain .308 bullet, so this should give good results up to 200 yards, which is about my reliable max limit with a receiver sight.
