Re: 200 gr Match Kings,...Good for Elk at long ranges?????
Dakor- I just worry about hitting my elk square through the shoulders and losing him. Sometimes I only get 1 chance at elk and I want that SOB going down!! I dont want him hanging a leg running off into the deepest, darkest, hole he can find. Have you ever tried doing any weight retentino tests with Bergers out of curiousity??? I"ll try to find a couple of the 210's I shot into paper at 100-200 yards. They didn't look pretty and weight retnetion was no more then 30%. I cant see where that would be any good for hitting elk shoulders. JMO based on what I've seen with my own expansion and weight retention tests. I know newspaper aint elk, but it does give an idea of what to expect from your bullet. This coming year I think I"ll give them a shot in my 7 RM. I"ll use the 168g and hope to get a shot anyways.
