Doesn't mean it's right or wrong that is just what I do. If I go extreme range I get more bullet and a bigger gun.
Very good post LTLR !!!!
At one time I considered building myself an Excalibur because of the performance potential
but found that the RUMs and Lapua would meet or exceed my limit of 1100 yards (The older
I get the lower my limit).
As far as the bullets I came to the same conclusion about the 225 Accubonds over the 250s.
And settled on the 225s because of down range performance.
There are bullets with better BCs but I can depend on the Accubonds to perform at extended
ranges and they are very accurate.
Your post has good info and should help those that are thinking about a new build. (Why build
it if you don't need/use it).
