    Be sure and check your regs for the state you will be hunting in.

    For example, in TN, you "cannot use military or other full metal jacket type of ammunition" for hunting

    A 203 gr soft point is available in Brown and Silver Bear.

    Winchester lists a 180gr SP at 2625 fps.  Graf and Sons has it in stock. I might try that one myself this year.

    That's what I use and they seem to group well from my Mosin.

    The brown bear has worked good for me :)

    I've taken 3 with the silver bear 203 gr sp ammo, it also shoots 1in groups iron sights off the bench with my Russian club rifle....

    I hunt a lot of pine rows so the Nagant with open sights is more than enough as you can't see squat past about 60-75 yards.
