G'day all, this is my first post on the website. And seeing as I know more about rifles than I do catfish, I thought this would be a better start of point. I've got a few questions today, about the rifle and load you use for deer hunting. --Questions-- 1). Rifle? What type of rifle do you prefer for deer shooting. Some people go the small and fast such as your 5.56x45mm's and some go the bigger mildly slower 7.62x51mm's. What rifle do you use and why? 2). Factory Loads or Your Own? Now, you either make your own loads to suit your rifle, or you buy factory ammo. If you prefer factory ammo, what is it and what are the statistics or your rifles load? But if you reload them yourself, what's your setup and what are the statistics of your load... if you do know them. 3). Winchesters Supreme Elite XP3's I've recently bought a packet of these rounds, and I'm dieing to try them out. They're supposed to be top of the Winchester range and out class everything. They're only for a few rifles and only come in 150gr, 160gr and 180gr in the following rifles. 30-06, 300 WSM, 300 Win Mag, 308 Win/ 7.62x51mm, 7mm Rem Mag, 7 mm WSM, 270 Win and 270 WSM. These expensive little guys have a two stage expansion for maximum damage. Here is the link if you don't know much about the new Winchester load, http://winchester.com/products/newitems/XP3product.aspx. Have you tried this round? what calibre rifle was it in and what results did you get from it? Thanks for your time.
