PostSubject: Loads for T/C Pro Hunter   October 23rd 2014, 6:17 pm

I drew a tag for an elk in AZ. I dug out my T/C Pro Hunter that I had not shot in A few years. My guide says I need to shoot a high quality 250 gr. bullet. I sighted it in with 100 grains by vol of Blackhorn 209 and a 250 gr T/C bullet. It was fairly accurate. Can I make any improvements on that for elk and can I find a chart that gives me drop at 200 yds with a 100 yd zero?

Congratulations on the tag.  I really like the Barnes Spitfire T-EZ which is an all copper bullet in either 250 grain or 290 grain.  

My TC Triumph loves the 250 grain bullet with 115 grains of Blackhorn and a CCI M 209 primer. I have helped a couple of friends sight in their Encores with similar loads.  Most find a group they like between 100 grains and 110 grains.  Of course every rifle is different. 

Good luck!

x2, if its going to be 250 grains, you better make it a Barnes. 110gr BH209 will also make it feel warm and fuzzy.

Drop on a 250 grain Barnes TMZ bullet out of your gun is going to be 4" low at 150 yds, 8" low at 175 yds and 12" low at 200 yds, 18.5" at 225 yds and 26" at 250yds.

It's always best to shoot your gun to verify, but those are going to be close.  Based on a 250 grain Barnes traveling at 1950 fps which is what 100 grains of BH should give you. Outside temperature 30 degrees F.

Good advice from all. My T/C 26" bone collector with 110g of 209, using CCIM 209 primers and 250grain
Thor spire point bullets starts at almost 2200 FPS and 2600 FP of energy.

I sight in at 100 yards which would have it 8" low at 200 . The energy at 100Y is about 2000 ft lbs and 1600 at 200 yds.

The last 6 Elk we have taken have all been at about 100 Yds or less at the Thor bullet performed perfectly with 100% retention.

I use a homemade LEAD SLED to reduce the recoil while sighting in to find out what the rifle is doing.
And also VERY IMPORTANT my son and I randomly leave the primer out to see if we are using proper
trigger techniques. We do this , even though we both shot expert through out our militay service.

The results are that we have always hit and found our Elk over the past 61 years for me and 36 years
for my son. The grandson is 1 for 1 last year.

Hope this helps.

Another vote for the Barnes if you're going to use a 250gr bullet for elk.
