Re: Best "All Around" Bullet for 300 WSM
I haven't used the 177 grain GS bullet in mine but I think it may be the best all around hunting bullet in 30 caliber. They are very expensive but need to be tested with that super high BC in a quality hunting bullet.
I have a tikka light 300 wsm for a light carry gun that will kill anything in Wyoming out to 600 yards and shoot relatively flat doing it. I ended up with the 150 grain nosler E-tip with a .469 BC at over 3400 fps. The monometal bullet hits and penetrates like a standard bullet twice it's weight because it retains 90+% of it's weight. With the light rifle recoil got to be a factor with the heavier bullets and the 150 is a pleasure to shoot. It shoots much flatter and using my mil dot scope hits to my 600 yard carry rifle standard were easy. It shoots great with the heavy bullets I just didn't see any reason using them when my longest anticipated shots would not excedd 700 or so yards. The 150 shoots much flatter inside this range and will kill anything I want. So in the light rifle and the anticipated hunting style with it that is what I came up with.
Predictions are difficult, especially when they involve the future
