Try a Speer 75g Gold Dot``````````````````````````````````````````````` ``````

the last antelope I shot was at 470 yards with a Rem 788 in 223 using a 55g Hornady sp with the cannalure with a muzzle velocity of 3100. Load was 26.5g of Win 748. He flopped at the shot. A couple of years later, I killed two legal does with the same load, and they both flopped, both around 100 yard lung shots.
