These bullets are simply the best for taking deer that I have ever used. The .260 is a great caliber rifle for deer hunting. I don't understand why it's not more popular. These Federal Premium Vital Shock bulletins are great at any reasonable range. My son and I have both taken deer at ranges from 25 to 225 yds. The knockdown power of this ammo is awesome. Nothing else goes into my .260.
I've shot everything on the market and yes I reload also. Both my rifles shoot factory Federal ammunition very well in a cold bore situation. Does not matter clean bore or dirty, Federal groups the best out of all the factory brands. I will continue to purchase this product until I find a better one.
