first id like to apologize for all the threads ive started. I do try to research before I make a new thread to avoid making duplicate threads but have not had much luck on this.
I am wondering what factory ammo you all might recommend for hunting deer ony(for now). I know it depends on the range I will be hunting them so I will say less than 200 yards would be typical with a rare chance at a 400+ yard shot. So the bullets id say would be more important to function at 25-200 yards. I know the 300WSM is a bit overkill for this range but I do shoot once in a while at the 450+ ranges as well. That being said, im looks for info on brand, weight bullet, type of bullet.
I know its tough to get good exit holes/vital shock destruction from a powerful gun at close ranges, this is why I am asking you experts on which bullets would be best for deer at the closer ranges to get decent expansion.
Also one last question, will the leupold bases and rings (ones that have the windage adjustment in the back) hold up to the 300 WSM
. I had them on my 7mm mag and they seemed to do fine.
