DOH, I should have known better, P.
It's too bad we can't get those powders, maybe someday. I have looked at the half dozen manuals I have and see that breaking 3000fps takes max loads. Maybe some of the folks around here using some of the newer powders can chime in with some numbers.
I would imagine you have bucket loads of 4831. It won't get him 3100 fps but I doubt a deer will know a 100fps difference.
Good luck

130gr 3234fps with 65gr of acc mag pro compressed load, its intresting this book has zero 140 gr loads over 300 fps but you step up to the 150's and there are 2 loads over 3000 fps
