Re: Best long range cartridge for a .473 bolt face LA
Those would be the calibers I would pick, but you could also add to the list, the 6.5x284. 30-06, and even a 270 using good bullets will do the job. I would rebarrel the 270 to a custom 270 with a 1:9 or 1:10 and shoot the 150 Berger or 150 Hornady SST out of it. That will knock them down.
For the 06, look at a 180 or 190 grain bullet and push the snot out of it. It will fillump them pretty quickly. You could also do a 260.
