First cow was milled at six hundred yards and was a very quartering away shot. She dropped like she got tazed stiff legs and tipped over. Second cow was milled at 575 but I hit a little far forward and caught some shoulder and lost some meat on the off side. Reading the wind was a little difficult on the second shot.
Sorry to dig up this old post buy I had a question on the Barnes LRX... Would you recommend them Grizzly too?
I am going to ANWR sheep hunting this summer but also can take a Grizzly if we happen upon one. I will be shooting a 300 wsm and am looking for a bullet with a good bc but also great weight retention.
I had been considering the Accubond, Accubond LR, Barnes TTSX or Barnes LRX.
I first want a great sheep bullet but definitely need the same bullet to be capable of taking grizzly.
Any thoughts/recommendations you can give would be great.
