Re: Which match bullet
I may be in the minority here, but for 350yd shots why are you desiring to use a match bullet? I know people use them successfully but others have issues with the fragmenting at higher velocities (ie shorter 200-350 yd shots) especially on larger animals. Since you don't need the long range performance of say a VLD why not use something like an Accubond? SMKs are no more accurate in my elk rifle than ABs.
See the recent SMK results thread posted on this forum. Sometimes they work, sometimes they don't. I hear a lot fewer failure stories with premium game bullets.
Not that there aren't instances I would not try a match bullet, but big game within 350 yds does not give me a compelling reason to actively choose one.
