PS...any pics of the mulie...? Love to see them if you do..
When I first tried the GS bullets, the 150HV's were running one full moa low at 700yrds out of the 30-06. Since then they have slightly changed the design of the bullet, and adjusted the bc's. They now seem to run with the advertised bc's out to a thousand yards. My 1000yrd testing has been out of a hot 30 cal, and has been pointed out (rightfully) that a 1000yrd is not far enough to really know if the advertised bc's are accurate. What I do know is that they are accurate enough to get me on target as well as the Noslers and bergers that I have tried. The "old style" GS bullets did not get me where I wanted. I have not tried them any further. I tried the Nosler E-tip out to 1200yrds last year and they were great to 1000yrds but I could not hit rocks at 1200yrds. It is either me, the equipment, the load, or the bullet. My guess is all of the above. I am planning on going out tomorrow to do a little rock shooting. I'll try and stretch the GS 177g out past 1000yrds and see if I can connect.
PS look in the long range hunting forum for the '09 MT hunting trip. All of the animals in that were taken w/ GS bullets.
