Re: 300 Win Mag with 215gr Berger or 210gr LRAB?

Hello Shoalwater, I am running a 28' Rock Creek, with 72.5 grains of 4831sc, and the 215 Berger. Velocity is 2949, using my Kestral, it is spot on every time out to 1100 yards, after that my nemisis the WIND, gets me.
I have shot the Bergers out to 2202 yards, using 88 moa, temp was 42 above, and alt was 4800 feet.
That being said the 208 Amax, with 72 grains of powder, needs 95 moa, same distance. For the cost of shooting 1000+ rounds a year, I like the Amax, if I could get Bergers for the same price, I would love to shoot them all the time.

(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!
If you don't mind, what is your OAL with the 210?

I have been shooting the Berger 210gr VLD with H1000 for several years at 2925fps, see no reason to switch. 26" barrel

I'm using 79gr Retumbo to get 2900 FPS out of my 26" Milspec 700 using 210 VLD''s. 2950 or more should be no problem in a 28" tube.

I got 2930 out of 24" 300 WSM with RL17 and 210 Bergers. I think you do 100-200 fps better with the WM in a 26" easy using RL17.

Very skeptical about the claimed BC of the ALR 210. It would have to defy laws of physics to be true. I think it's a lot closer the the 210 Berger BC.

Dang, 2,930 out of a WSM with the 210's sounds like it is defying physics to me! That's pretty solid!
