Re: F-Class caliber?

I would think the .284 would be the perfect option. It does everything you could want and barrel life is awesome!

Example: Using your ballistic software of choice, run the wind drift numbers for 5 mph of wind for both a 3100 fps .284 180 Hybrid bullet and your .308 (2700 fps 190 Hybrid?). It's fairly easy to miss 5 mph worth of wind over a 900-1000 yd shot on less then ideal days. Given equal shooters/loads/rifles, the difference in drift you see between the two calibers on your calculation will be manifested on the target.

Or just compete this season with a bunch of fellas shooting 7mms....and you not...that'd be another way for the light to come on
I dont use ballistic calculators...

Banjo....You don't have to. I listed another method for the light to come on for you.

Why are you here anyway?

People come on this forum fall into two categories....they are here either to learn or share the results of thier experience to help others learn.

This forum isn't for trolls/tools who have nothing more than an interest in antagonizing others on a discipline (LR Hunting) that they know nothing about.

I've read your posts....you've contributed nothing IMHO to this great forum. And it appears as though you've chased off the more knowledgeable sages of your previous threads.

So my two cents to you...and others like you. edit Go to another forum. And yes....if we were in person I'd say the same...and trust me...you'd listen to my advice.

Or.... you could sit on your hands for while. Post respectfully. Learn. Become a better LR shooter. And then maybe someday, you can help someone else along...when they don't understand why a 7mm Rem Mag can "make a rookie look good".

Hope that wasn't to harsh. If it was for you....well toughen up Francis. You've got a lot to learn. You're going to have a helluva time learning LR hunting all by yourself with an attitude like yours. There's a lot of great knowledgable folks on here. It tweaks me to see someone like yourself muck this forum up.

Re: F-Class caliber?

Autorotate, that's why I decided to continue to post...somewhat. It was to give knowledge to those who stumbled across this thread and try to glean some knowledge. Better to have some good info rather than a bunch of nonsense. Though this thread could have had much better info. It's a shame really.
