Most Wicked Long Range Wildcat Debate!

So for all of you experienced loaders and gun men; What is the most impressive long range wildcat hunting round ? Preferably 1000+ yards.

- High BC
- High speed
- Highest Accuracy
- Best or Worst on Barrel life?
- Ease or Difficulty to get parts/ Difficulty to load?
- Intangibles?

I wanna learn! Let the conversation begin!

    My guess on W3P .308 230 Grain Bullet: G1 .740-.755

    Good choice Riley. I don't have either one so factor that in. Looking at turn key setups I'd say one of Shawn Carlocks LRKMs in 338 Edge +P, or the Sako TRG 42 in either 300 Winchester or 338 Lapua. Most likely it would be 300 Winchester, but I keep thinking a 300 Lapua would be interesting.

    Shawn Carlock's Defendive Edge LRKM in 338 Terminator +P.

    But lets take it out closer to 3000 yards.

    I knew you were going to chime in and cast your vote for the 375 AM, i donno based on Mr.Allen's #'s the 338 AM out runs the 375 AM in energy at 1800+ yards. (BOOM!)
