Re: 0-700 yard shots
There are lots of good bullets on the market. But they need to be placed in a good spot. There is do majical bullet that will kill everything quickly when placed badly.
That being said, I replied to your thred because I am building a rifle right now to do what you are wanting. A 300 win to shoot very accuratly and buck the wind as good as posible to 1000 yards. The first hunt for this rifle will be spring Black Bear. My rifle will be loaded with 210 Berger VLD's. Why? Because I have used them a lot for hunting at ranges fron 50 yards to over 800. I have friends that have shot them at game farther and I have seen the results. I alone have taken 1 Elk, probably 8 WT and Mule deer, a dozen antelope, a Black Buck, an Aoudad ram, and 2 Axia deer with them. Never tracked one, watched every one of them fold up.
See what you rifle likes and will shoot the best. Then practise a bunch to know your limitations. You hit them right they will fall with the Bergers.
EDIT/ PS. yes the Elk in my signature was taken with 210 Bergers. DRT.
