    very true, regardless of what that bullet hits it makes quite wack when it lands.

    Nice! Glad those mags worked for you! Shot a spike with my Ruger 358 at 30yards using the Lee 200 at 2300 fps or so. Double lunger quartering away. Turned a rib into shrapnel. Deer made it 60-70 yards before piling up. Found the boolit in the dirt. Mushroomed nicely. Put a cheapo brake on it and it feels like a 30-30 despite having quite a bit more power. Amazing how much cast boolit power in a nice 7 lb package.

    What did you end going with for a brake? I might be interested in trying one, that light rifle gets lively with some of the 230gr loads.
