Re: Anyone own a 7mm 300 Win Mag?
Ok Broz (and others), lets see if I can put this into words. I have been pretty set on building a new 300 WM, but I every time I update myself on this thread, I get to questioning which one is "better" (realizing that is a loaded question).
When I run the ballistics on the two (180 VLD @ 3150 fps vs 215 Hybrid @ 3000 fps) they are basically identical. With my inputs, the 215 has about 200 ft-lbs more energy at 1000 yards. Velocity and wind drift are within negligible margins of each other. Obviously the faster 180 is flatter, but that doesn't matter to me.
So, from what you have seen between your 300 with 215's compared to the 7/300's you have been around, have you noticed any difference in killing ability on game, all distances near to far considered?
Thank you for any input you or others might have on this. Trying to make a decision.........
