the new barnes lrx(145)with 7828 or h1000 is working real good for me it has a bc of .530 or right in that zone. i worked it up all the way to 1000yards and the 530 matches almost all the way out to 1000 at 3500. and it is less than 1moa

Get you a box of either 175 smk or 180 smk. Very easy to make shoot and they kill very well.

Is that 1"moa off shooting sticks are the bench ? Field conditions are less forgiving. 1 MOA is good enough for kill zone in 700yds isn't it.

i do all my shooting off a harris bipod from the ground trying to get as close to field conditions as i can. they work real well on elk to 652 yds my friend killed one earlier this year with one shot and not much meat damage. we did not recover the bullet and it went though both shoulders.

I had a 7 STW and shot the 168 Bergers very well out to 700yards. 1/2 MOA to be exact.
That was in a 1:9x barrel. I had a Wyatt magbox installed in order to seat the bullets w the BT at the neck shoulder junction.
