Thanks DD. I see some sites have 90 grain Fed Fusion projectiles “coming soon”. Are there any other HUNTING bullets around 90 grains being offered? This was what the Valkyrie was designed to shoot , but the Fusions are the only hunting bullet in that weight that I have ever seen and so far only in loaded ammo. What is everyone else hunting deer with? I have shot a few with ELD-Ms but they are not designed for hunting

MY Nephew shot a deer  at 220 yards with 224 Val loaded with Berger 85.5 VLD Target  wow it made a mess blew a 3 inch exit hole deer did not take a step  it was a very impressive kill , He shot one the year before with 90 fed it went 10 or 20 yards pretty much same shot placement high neck shot . I am going to pop a Antelope the next fall with mine if I can I would like todo it 300 to 400 yards
