Re: Condor killer

Another note 64grn Winchester Razorbacks did not stabilize in a 1:12 twist .223 . Another factory option that is CA legal . They just didn't shoot well in my gun.

Re: Condor killer

I've worked up a load with 180 grain Etips in my Savage 300 win mag. Loaded touching the lands over 72.5 grains of Reloader 25 and Tula mag primers has netted me .25 moa at 100 yards. Need to take a day off and visit the longer range and work out the drops, but it looks like these will work for my cow elk hunt in January.

Re: Condor killer

You're going to have problems, in my opinion, with any monometal bullet and long range, say over 600 yards, no matter how fast they are going, or what the BC is. I just don't see them opening that well, but I'm going by the unlimited pics of monometal bullets that have been shot and opened up at various speeds. I'd wait until the last minute to worry about the whole state going lead free. You never know what new bullets are on the horizon.

Re: Condor killer

Some of us live and hunt in the Condor Leadfree Corridor. So waiting isn't an option. . . I would love a host of bullets , that fill the bill so to speak , that are affordable, accurate and lead free. I feel that bullet makers are diligently working on those challenges.

Re: Condor killer

ya I dont even hunt in the condor zone anymore because I am limited to a 300 yard shot. I havent hunted with my friends in central Ca since the lead ban began. I would love to check all my old spots in D13 and the san rafael wilderness with a long range weapon, If I could put something together that I felt confident out to 700 yds I would be happy. I just dont want to waste a bunch of money and time going in the wrong direction.

Thats good to hear!!
