70g SMK from 243Win

For paper from 300 to 600

I've been shooting 100g SGK's for deer out of my 243Win with nice results (quick kills) to 200 yards

My range has now opened up a 600 yard shooting area. I topped the 243 with 6 x 24 scope and would like to shoot paper in our fun shoots from 300-600 yards

Local shop has some 70g SMK's that i was thinking of giving a go. At a max distance of 600 yards would i see much advantage to the 95g SMK's rather than trying these 70g bullets?

Re: 70g SMK from 243Win

If its a calm day, and you get better accuracy from the 70's, you could do just as well with them.

However, the 95's will definately have the advantage in the wind....Especially if it's gusting...........If you are allowed sighter shots before the record rounds, and the winds are usually steady, you could do just fine with the 70's.
