Re: 300win

if you shoot a very soft bullet you might get 900 yards out of it. I wouldnt trust reliable expansion past 1600 fps with any bullet. My personal limit is 1800fps, just to be safe... except yotes and wolves (as long as I get lead in them im happy).

    Palma guys shoot 1000 with similar bullets, but for hunting I would stay at 700. Too much wind drift at longer ranges with that bullet.

    temp will be between 20-50F and the altitude is under 1000ft. I am gonna try and chrono the load tomorrow if my new chrono shows up and then I will know a little more of what I am working with.

    good limit's I think you are probably right 900 may be the limit unless I can push her a little faster.

    At 750 ft and 35* the 1000 ft lbs of energy and 1800 fps velocity both drop by 10 yards.

    Biggest fail of 2014 so far... http://www.longrangehunting.com/foru...ea-ftf-128972/
