Ballsitic Tip and V-max past 500 yards dont work (WRONG)

Hello all, remeber when you are reading this, I know all about BC and the importance of using high BC bullets for long range shooting. So PLEASE!! don't lecture me about the importance of high BC bullets.

Many have stated these bullets do not perform well past 500 yards, BULL S--T!!!

Here we go, I am building a new project and I am designing it around the 300-WSM using a 125grn Nosler Ballistic Tip traveling at 4000+fps for squirrel hunting out to 1000 yards. This is against the norm, so some on this sight have suggested that this bullet will not perform well past 500 yards. This is a bunch of bull s--t!!!.

I've used ballistic Tip and V-max bullets for shots out to 1000 yards with great results. Now, I've designed my rifles around these bullets as well as shooting them at very high velocities and that's probably why I have had good results. I have made many consistant kills on ground squirrels at ranges of 500, 600, 700, 800, 900, and 1000 yards using these bullets out of a 223, 220 Swift and 6x284. So, I know they do perform well past 500 yards.

PLEASE!!!! STOP SAYING THESE BULLETS DON'T PERFORM WELL PAST 500 yards. They perform well out to 1000 yards. Now if people want to say they don't work well past 1000 yards, then I would proably agree with that argument.

The bottom line is, when these bullets are pushed fast, they perform very well past 500 yards and out to 1000 yards.

Well, being as you know everything, I guess you won't be asking for any advice in the future.

Basically some on this site have said these types of bullets don't work past 500 yards. That type of statment is just not true. I am not saying I know everything, however, I will say I do know these bullets perform very well past 500 yards. I just want others to know that these bullets work very well out to 1000 yards, because they have worked for me.

I think your taking my post the wrong way, I apologize if I offended you. I just have lot's of experience using these types of bullets with good results, and I wanted to share my experience.

I took a chill pill.

I took the knot out the knickers.

I got off the caffine.

Ordered some new thick skin.

Sorry, I said hello all.

Anyhow, I will next time direct the rant at the individual who made the comment.

Thanks for the advice.
