Re: 600y gun

Well comparing the 22 dasher to a 6 dasher in the wind is really no comparsion. The a-max and sierra 80 grain bullets have a b.c of .5 and at 3400 FPS thats pretty impressive. But with the 100 grain wildcat RBBT at 3000 fps it flat out shoots in the wind. I did shoot 7 wsm,s before I got in the heavy fast twist 22 cals and at 500 to 700 yards which I typically shoot I cant really see much advantage with the big guns. The .224 B.c to match my drop charts 80's .5 90 sierra berger .6 and the 100 wildcat close to .7. This is ground hog moa out to a 1000 b.c. The 6 dasher shoots the 105 and 107 at 3000 fps with a b.c of around .5. After the brass is formed you can get 10 or more loadings on the brass at 3000 fps with the wildcat or 80's at 3400. Hope this helps
