Re: Nightforce with 0.1 mil turret
Well my opinion is that if you areºtalking about terminal ballistics, of course the bullet mass is something to bear in mind.. but for long range BC is a very important thing.- not just less windage problems but also more retained energy.
If you are planning to shoot varmints, I would give the 6,5 a serious thought. You wont be able to go with a short action though unless you chamber for the 260 rem., but I would stick with a 6,5x55 or 6,5-284 in the 6,5 caliber. Any of these will beat a 308 at long range; the 300 win is different if you shoot high BC and therfore heavy bullets. Just run some numbers in a ballistics program and check... but the 300 win will come at the expense of much more recoil.
