Not too many years ago, factory loads were available in this weight. While this bullet is definitely a short range proposition,
it can develop over 1900 ft/lb of energy at 100 yards. With a 100 yard zero it is 8 inches low at 200 and 15 inches low
at 300 yards. Nonetheless, it hits like a pile driver at ranges where hunters encounter game. It's high sectional density
(.316) plays a big part.
215 grain jacketed bullets used to be made by Remington and CIL of Canada, but no more.
