Re: 208 AMAX .300WSM Groups
I agree about them being too frail for moose and close up elk, although I think for elk at longer ranges when the velocity calms down a bit I think they would be excellent so long as you kept them out of the shoulder. These will make spectacular deer and sheep and antelope loads though!
I am not pushing them that fast either. 2925 is all. But they are exceptionally accurate. I am getting groups at 300 yards in the 1" to 1.25" range. with 93.0 of H50BMG @ 2925 FPS.
I am still working on a elk/moose load with the 200 AB.
Long range shooting is a process that ends with a result. Once you start to focus on the result (how bad your last shot was, how big the group is going to be, what your buck will score, what your match score is, what place you are in...) then you loose the capacity to focus on the process.
