I don't think expansion should be a problem on PD and squirrels at 1000 yds

Seriously though, I shoot the 115 DTAC moly out of my 243 AI @ 3178fps. It is very acccurate and I have taken a PD at 734yds. Third shot to dial it in, but 4 mph wind enough to push it around at that distance.

I am very happy with it. 585 BC gives it great accuracy.

I'll send ya few if you want to try em out....

Senderoman, the 115 DTAC has great BC. What is your barrel twist rate. I have a 1-8.5 twist, 30", 4 groove Krieger, will the 115 DTAC work in that twist rate?

I have a 30" Broughton 5c 1 in 8 twist. I am pretty sure it should work. I have shooting buddy that has a 8.5 and he shoots 115 VLD's in it fine. But, he shoots at 5800 ft asl.

I have seen tests done by David Tubbs from a 1 in 8.2 twist 29 in barrel I think.... They should shoot in yours....

let me know...

Senderoman, do you use the 115grn DTAC for varminting. Also, how fast can they be pushed. I am thinking the 6x284 has the potential to push them at around 3300fps.

I am thinking the 105grn A-Max will be the best for varminting, due to expansion.

The gentleman I got the rifle from was shooting them at 3250 in the 243 AI.

I am getting 3178 out of them here. Look at my prior post, Tubbs link has more info.

I haven't shot a coyote yet, but just now got drop chart made up and have tested out to 1000 with it.

Shot PD's and rocks so far...

Coyotes real soon... Taking my boy out tonight and in the morning !!

Let ya know the results if we get into them.

SenderoMan, thanks for the info. How did they expand on the PDogs??

Also, I look forward to hearing how they work on the yotes.

Even the one at 734 was almost in 2 pieces.... Tyler, my son, thinks it is "real cool" when you see what they have been eating... "chunks of grass all over is cool" LOL

hope to see what happens with coyotes... to hot tonight to go... 93 degrees.

we are gonna try in the morning.
