I started back in '68 with 58 grains of 3031 and  have never changed.  That is under a Hornady 300 grain flat nose hollow point. Flat does the job and has for all these years.  No need to change.

wildman1:
52g of OE 1.5 o2f, BACO .379, 260g bullet cast with 20-1 lead tin alloy. Runs a little under 1500 fps. 2 1/4" groups at 200yds with a peep site shooting from a rest.

PS Original Winchester Sporting rifle.

Forgot to mention that my '86 is an original rifle. As one gun nut said when he saw it said that it is a "Hunters" rifle.
