Re: Hi from South Africa - LRH newbie
Application will be for 2 main reasons:
Hunting: Small to medium antelope (Springbuck, Impala, Kudu, Bluewoldebeest) to approx 300m (smaller game 400m) so need something that will open reliably at that velocity, will have approx 1 200fps at 375m if I launch at 2 850fps so I am pushing it.
Was thinking Accubond, Interbond, something with a decent BC although (if I'm right) BC not that important at these ranges?
Target: up to 500m, was thinking Lapua Scenar 155g at 2 600 - 2 700fps (ot whatever the sweetspot is), or maybe AMax etc.
Gary Schultz from GS Custom is from the same city as where I live, Port Elizabeth in South Africa. His premises is approx 20km from my home. I have never tried his bullets but know them. When the rifle's finished I will maybe pop in and have a chat to him re a load? Know they are quite expensive but if they work brilliantly then it's worth it.
Thanks for the other comments guys, if you ever need any listings of hunting places in SA please let me know and I will pass on any info I can to help.
