Re: Longest shot so far outta the 243AI
Kirby, I gotta tell ya, I would be satisfied to kill a groundhog at 500-600 with it. I'm really interested in the bullet's expansion at the extended ranges on groundhogs... as that's my main target. Birds are harder to hit, but easier to kill when hit. So it's hard to answer. I wish it had been a groundhog, so I could see if it had killed him, or if he was just gonna turn into a dragger. I have all ideas that the bullet I'm shooting(sierra 70grn. Blitzking) is gonna run outta steam at 5-600 yards on g-hogs. I'm getting 3850FPS vel. out of a 28" 10 twist tube. My buddy is shooting the same bullet out of his 6br at 3300fps and has had draggers at 450 yards. Most places I have to hunt are out to 500, and I've got a few that are on out there 1000+ But I'm just learning and time will tell... what do you think about that bullet and about where it may fail to perform? Thanks, Sam in Va.
Hoggin' Heaven'... That's where they are when I'm done!
