Will a std. magnum bolt face work? Just looking for some input from you guys that have experience with this round. What powder combos seem to work for you and what kind of velocity could I expect with the above bullets out of a 26in tube?
The 175 VLD and 178 A-Max will stay supersonic past 1000yds so why do you need to use the 200+grain bullets?
Even in my 308 I'm shooting those two bullets supersonic past 1000yds and thats so far out there that you need to be an expert at reading conditions such as wind to even hit anything, let alone hunt with.
With the 300WSM those same bullets will be supersonic even further.
Just my opinion but the 300WSM with either of those will shoot much better than most of us can aim them. A slight increase in BC won't compensate for any REAL problem.
If you HAVE to push those bigger ones use the 300WM it will fit into a 110 action as it is long enough...
