Re: What magnum-boltface cartridge for long range
I have a 26.5" strait tapper barrel with muzzle dai of 0.750 on my 7mag, about 1 out of 4 I can spot my hits at 500. the other 3 I just can't quite get back on fast enough. 180gr at 3k, better plan on a 28-30" barrel
Keep in mind the animals we shoot for food and display are not bullet proof. Contrary to popular belief, they bleed and die just like they did a hundred years ago. Being competent with a given rifle is far more important than impressive ballistics and poor shootability. High velocity misses never put a steak in the freezer.
