Its hard to get back into the swing of things after being out of the office for five days, and knowing you have to leave again so soon. I finalized my ammunition and Skills Check columns for Shooting Illustrated and conducted some terminal performance testing of three .30 Remington AR loads. (The Shooting Illustrated ammo column will be on the .30 Remington AR and you can see the test results there.)

I would not hesitate to use either on any deer or black bear. What we need now is for Barnes to offer a .30 Remington AR load in their new line of ammunition. I would suggest the 110 TAC-X bullet at between 2900 and 3000 fps.
