264 Win Mag, Which Bullet?

Iv got a .264 win mag sendero on the way. I'm going to use it for long range coyotes, mule deer, and antelope out to 1,000 yards eventually. Iv been looking at the 140gr berger vld and the 142 smk. I don't know if the smk will expand in smaller calibers, so I was hoping you guys could answer that. Iv heard the .264 can be kinda finicky to load for so I was looking for any tips or suggestions. I was going to order nosler brass, redding normal fl sizing die and st die. Thanks

    My best hunting results are with the 130 grain swift sciroco .572 bc. It is a good quality hunting bullet with good balistics. I use it in my 264 Gibbs, 264 win mag, and 264 STW. It also worked well in my 6.5-300 wsm but I sold that one. Run the numbers on it and see what you think.

    What's the secret to getting a 130gr Swift to shoot? I have never had any luck in the accuracy department with it?

    140gr Accubond has been much better for me.

    What velocity can I expect out of the 26" barrel with the 130's and 140's. I guess Im asking what should I plug into the ballistic program for each? Thanks

    I don't think you could go wrong with the Scirocco or the Accubond. My $.02
