.300WM long range bullet

Hello guys, please help me choose a bullet for my .300WM blaser match barrel 11 twist rate... I will use this for hunting up to 1000 yards... I was thinking on berger hunting vld 210gr... The only problem is that here in EU I can not find them, I hope that sinclair international will send them to eu...

Any suggestions?

The 210 VLD will serve you well and is as heavy as that 11 twist will send. That would be as good as you could get for a producion bullet to 1000 yards.

You should be able to get 2850 from a 26" with H-1000 or pretty close to it with the 210

Re: .300WM long range bullet

You could also use the new Berger 215, and the Hornady A-max 208. They both have a higher ballistic coefficient than the 210 Berger.
