Hi there, I was "surfing" and came across this interesting site - well, for me anyway. I use a ruger M77 which has been worked on a bit (boss, trigger job, etc). It performs reliably on large antelope, wildebeest, etc out to 400m using any factory mor close to factory load with bullet weights between 200 and 215gr. Zeroed at 200m bullet drop is negligible at 300 and easily compensated for out to about 400 (no sniper scope required) and penetration and impact at those ranges is still more than adequate. With a bit more practice and decent conditions (or with a decent adjustable scope) I would think it would also be fine to 500, but havent tried it.
