Re: Best LR setup for wildgoose hunting?
I have a 1-10 twist barrel, so the 105-107 bullet won`t stabilize in my barrel.
But maybe I will change barrel later, and than I may change to an another cal like(22-250,22-250AI,22-243,6mm Norma br or 243AI) or 243with an 1-8twist.

Yes, but most of my shoots at goose are closer than 300yards, and a cross wind about 2-3m/s.
I have try a lot of bullet in my 243win, and my last I try was 87gr V-max, 90gr Scenar and 90gr scirocco.
The scirocco I got about 1" 3shot group at 100Yards.
90gr Scenar I got from 1/4" to about 2" at 100yards(wery varying group size)
87gr V-max I olso got varying group size form 1/3" to about 1.5" at 100yards.
I think that the scenar bullet will not expand enough to get a quick kill, and maybe the 87gr V-max will destroy to mutch meat.
How about Berger bullet about 80-90grain, have anyone som experience with they?
