The Berger 230 Hybrid, in a 300 win mag. is it good enough for deer at 1000 yds. will it open or just go through with out opening??
Deer meaning, Reds, Fallow and Sika.
Shoud I be looking at a different Cal. ??
We have taken antelope to 750, and a few around 600 yards. Also a large muley buck at 893 yards and a Bull elk at a little over 500 in a scraming wind. Plus a couple cow elk at 400ish. I would have no problemshooting a deer at 1000 with the 230 OTM Hybrid from a 300 Win. Everything we have shot with them was done with one shot where they stood.
Thanks for the info, do you know at what speeds the 230 berger and others open best at? will they open as low as 1500 fps or as high as 3150 fps. I am thinking of trying the 105 VLD in my 243 win ackley imp. I was told I would need to be at 200 yds + which would be about 2800 fps.
