Practice and make a range card for the bullets you will be shooting. The 325 should perform with ease at 500 yards. If I remember correctly the Nosler 200gr are Accubonds and the Ballistic tips are 180gr.

I belive the 200 AB is a great hunting bullet with decent bc's, but they can be a little pricy to shoot. For lighter skinned game I would use the 180 BT, or the Sierra GK's.

Here is a pic of the 180 BT on a coyote only loaded at about 2800fps
