    I would suggest reading the 1000's of post in the archives. It ends up with a little chevy vs ford argument but there is a LOT of good solid research archived here.

    Your question is kinda like asking what's the best car that will go over 40mph...very broad and so the spectrum of rigs that individuals think is the best past 400 yards could be very varied. You might want to try to narrow the field a bit by specifying additional parameters...if you have any...such as cost, availability, recoil, how far past 400 yards, hunting or paper or both, type of game anything that in your mind is important.

    I really like my 7mm STW. It's a helluva round for 400-1200 yards on whitetail deer. It will kill much larger game if you need to as well....elk, bear, moose, caribou, etc.....

    I shoot the 160 grain AccuBond, and it is a screamer! Also, one helluva hunting bullet.
