The reason I've never gone to the 150gr bullets is I have a 1-11 twist but more than that running the ballistics I would have to drive the 150gr within 50FPS of the 140 to equal it. The 140 seems to be the best spot for speed vs BC until you step up to the 169.5 Wildcat then you step into a whole new class.
At the elevation I elk hunt I hit a 1000yrds at 1929fps with 1155 ft-lbs of energy, well within what I want for deer. At 800yrds I have 2174fps with 1470ft-lbs of energy, which is well within what I want for elk.
It depends a lot on where I hunt due to how fast I can go from 5000ft elevation to 8000ft elevation.
Hey Bigngreen, what is your muzzle velocity? Thats gotta be cookin! Im hitting the high 1400ft lbs range between 5 and 600 yds on my chart, with a 140Accubond, at 3200fps at the muzzle, but I dont know what elevation the chart was made with. Maybe Im using the wrong data. You may have just opened my eyes to a whole new world......
Im 3500 to 8500 ft in elevation where I hunt, with an avg of 5000ish ft. What load base did you use to calculate all that? Im gonna have to learn it. Any way you could P.M. me the link or is it a paid for app?
