This has probably been asked and answered several times already on this forum, but I am new here.
I've always been a bolt action man, I own seven centerfire bolt action rifles beginning with the 243 winchester and ending with my latest purchase a Stevens model 200 in 300 Win mag (which I love BTW), about a month ago a pal of mine wanted one of my 870 express Remington shotguns really bad, he had a Marlin 336 in 35 Rem to swap, it was wearing a nice entry level Leupold scope in see thru mounts
(yeah I know) anyway I traded for the rig bought 2 boxes of the new 200 gr ammo and went to my local range.
I didn't expect much in the accuracy department especially given the gawd awful mounting system.......boy was I wrong! the 100 yd average group went just under MOA, moving out to 200 yards I started shooting slow fire 3 shot groups, letting the barrel cool between shots, my best group went into just under 3/4 inch... this is damn good from a lever gun!
My question is how does this bullet preform on game?
