Just out of curiosity...........

Could somebody run the numbers for me and see how far out the 300WSM should kill game.Lets say a minimum impact speed of 1500 fps,27" barrel, and Match Kings, or A-Max.
Somebody probably already knows the answer to this from real world hunting.
Thanks.

Well, I am not sure what kind of game or what bullet, but if you use a 178 AMAX at 3000 FPS at standard air it will have about 1500 FPS at 975 yards. That is also about 900 FPE.

My answer to this is. The only reason is to make the 7 RM look good. There is no other reason.

Check out Biggameinfo.com and run their ballistics program. Lists game weight suitable for different ranges.
