    Well I wouldn't say hot perhaps but up there. Should be able to get near 3000fps with that weight. Be a flat shootin' SOB!

    I just checked my Barnes book and it claims nearly 3100fps with this bullet for almost 5000 lbs of ME! Holy smackerel! Elmer Keith would probably say it is adequate for most plains game!

    For what it's worth I used a 300 gr. Partition at 2,500 fps on deer. It was the one and only time I experienced a bullet "failure".

    The Partition didn't expand.

    The deer went down so fast I honestly though I'd missed at first.

    the 300gr partition is way too tough and slow for deer out of a H&H! that being said a .375" hole in a deer's heart/lungs is more then enough to bring it down.

    if I ever felt like using my 375 H&H to take a deer id use a Speer 235gr hot-cor. these "little" bullets have a pretty good track record for putting deer down fast.
