p.s. I think I'll just stick with my 300 with bullets that expand down to 1300'
The Scirocco I think may well be the exception. With factory Remington 180's I'm getting under .6MOA at 1080yds.
I've got a few boxes of custom loaded 130gr Sciroccos coming for my 260 and hopefully I'll get some time to shoot them next week.
I'll post the results.
I know what you mean in general though. Finding a bullet that meets both the VLD BC's and great terminal peformance on game IS a challenge.
As soon as I get some more brass saved up I'm going to start loading for it and I've already got some of the Hunting ballistic tips and when I get them ready to go I'll post some results on them as well. I'm betting though that the Sciroccos fly much better.
