190 gr Wildcat and 7mm Dakota = mini Edge?
I was kicking around some bullet/cartridge combos and wanted to see what y'all think. I like what I've read about the 338 Edge but I love the 7mm bullets too much to stray. From what I've read, the 190 gr Wildcat has a BC around .83-.9 and if matched with the Dakota and a 30" barrel should produce around 3000 fps with fairly low pressure.
Will this combo produce some awesome downrange performance? I'm thinking it will be good for deer out to 1300 yds or so.
