Guys I like to ask will 75 gr. Volume and 240 gr. Hornady mag. Bullet get the job done on deer out to 100 yards.
My shoulder at 71 years old are not what they use to be.
I can't shoot 12 gauge any longer and for sporting clays.
I run a semi auto 20 ga.
Shoulder are saying goodbye.

Yes, that will work. Shoot a double lung shot to be safe and sure of a kill.

Agreed, lung shots don't tear up meat and when hit the wind goes out (they don't go far). :Grace

Looking at the BH209 load data, it shows 80 gr-v being used with a 240 gr bullet, and velocity of 1696 f/s.  70 gr-v is not shown.  But, likely give you a velocity around 1500 f/s?  

Now a smoking hot loaded factory round (Buffalo Bore 44-mag +P) is only 1350 f/s, and that is powerful medicine against all kinds of critters!!  Plenty of muzzle energy at 1281 ft-lbs.  Heck, lots of folks use 44-mag for black bears and big bore hogs.

Yep.  Plenty of wallop with your set up.

My only concern is that the BH folks don't show a 75 gr-v load.  They begin at 80 gr-v.  Some powders (smokeless) have minimum charges due to ignition and or pressure problems.  Have no idea about BH209.  I'd suggest you contact them and ask.  That or have your worst buddy fire off a few dozen shots.  Either way you have your answer and if it blows up, no big loss!

I don't know if Western Powder Co. has a recommended minimum load but I shoot 21 grains by weight of BH 209 in my Ruger Old Army that has conversion nipples which accept small rifle primers. I shoot a 250 gr. bullet with that load.
