Re: best long range hunting .284 bullet??
For deer and smaller the 162 AMAX has my vote.
.625 BC and highly explosive on deer. Its also a VERY accurate bullet.
Long range shooting is a process that ends with a result. Once you start to focus on the result (how bad your last shot was, how big the group is going to be, what your buck will score, what your match score is, what place you are in...) then you loose the capacity to focus on the process.
