Re: Lets talk best LR cartridge vs accuracy!

I guess what I'm saying is that for the 600 yard distance you're anticipating nearly any good 30 caliber accurate cartridge/chambering will do. The difference between a 308 Win, 300 Win mag, 30-338 Lapua will of course be drift, drop and energy but all are capable of being accurate enough at that distance to kill elk with a good clean hit. There is something to be said for having plenty of buffer/margin and the little ol' 308 Win would probably be right on the lower edge of adequate while the 30-338 Lapua would certainly have plenty of leg left after such a short run.
The BC for the 200 Accubond appears to be .588, respectable.... now to discover if it's accurate.
