Re: inpu ton long range hunting bullets anyone?
I've never used the GS bullets before, but hoping to give them a whirl in my 300 Ultra. They sound like an excellent bullet but very spendy. Not something you would want to use on PD's and rocks very often unless you dont' mind spending an extra $1 - $1.50 per pop.
The best .284 GS bullet for LR consideration is the 140 HV rated at about .48 BC. You could probably easily get 3400 fps out of a 7RM (possibly 3500) which would get you to a little past 1000 yds @ 1000' elevation, with 1600 fps which is the minumum expanding velocity for most of the GS HV's.
My next choices would be the 150 E-Tips or 160 ABs.
