Re: 300 Win Mag with 215gr Berger or 210gr LRAB?
I shoot a Berger 210 VLD in both a hunting and target variation with H-1000 powder out of a McGowan 26" barrel with a 1-10 twist. I'm getting exceptional accuracy out to 1,300yds so far with what I believe is pushing close to 2,800fps at the muzzle. (this velocity figure is from memory, so must verify for sure) My build is based on a Savage action. Because my gun has loved the 210 gr. Bergers, I have never tried anything else. Looking to get more experience over 1,500yds on 12" gong targets this summer, but according to my Nightforce program, I don't believe I'm getting that magic 1000 ft./lbs of energy left in the bullet beyond 1,200yds for live targets. It sure has been well worth the time, money, and effort though!
