Re: 30 cal long range preference....210gr vld Berger or 220gr Match king?

I really like my 458 win. I really love reloading for it. I can load it hot or light like a 45-70. but the best accuracy is with the heavy 500 hornady round nose. off the bench I printed a 3/8" group. not much fun off the bench though. I am from maine and planned on using it on moose. never got picked for a permit. oh well. I do plan on using it for deer though. right now I am in eastern Pennsylvania...shotgun only.

I have always wondered what hitting a deer with a 458 win mag would do.

as for the 300 ultra. I think I will stick with the 220gr. I can't seem to find a box of 100 of the 240gr. everyone stocks the 500 box. so far I checked bruno's and midway. only boxes of 500. too much of a bullet which I don't know how it will perform in my rifle.

Dr. John, they only sell the 240's in 500ct boxes. [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img] Fear not though, the 220's shoot good and will create an exit wound like you've never seen. [img]images/icons/shocked.gif[/img]
