I think hunting load choices ( all load choices really) have been made too complicated. I think it all boils down to wound channel extremes or anywhere in between. For instance, do you want the largest diameter wound channel? if so , then you must accept the shallowest. If you want the deepest penetration, you must accept the smallest diameter wound channel. Or something in between. So instead of picking loads, just define the shape of the hole you want to drill. I dont think many guys relate to the wound channels or there wouldnt be so many that use 200gr in 10mm for personal defense. Of course if you want to plan on penetrating barriers before your target that is a whole different story.
