Never shot anything below 70 in any of mine.The best accuracy I've ever had came from the 80gr. Speer spitzer.For a hunting round you can't beat the factory 85gr. Barnes Triple Shock.
Sorry... Yesterday was the last and final day for any and all complaints whatsoever.

I try to avoid temptation unless I can't resist it.

Everyone has a photographic memory.Some just don't have film.

I can't help you either, I have only used 95- 105 gr in both 240's of mine. I do have some 65 and 70 gr bullets here, just have never got around to try them.

Welcome to the Nation highhopes56!!! I don't have a 240, but I was wondering what you plan on using your 240 for, with such light bullets?  Without looking at a reloading book I would guess they are screaming out of the muzzle at over 4,000 fps.
