Re: Recomended bullet weight for ELK
With a barometric pressure of 29.95 and a temperature of 30 degress and and a RH of 59, the 255 AccuBond will have 21 inches of wind drift in a 10 MPH cross wind at 600 yards with a muzzle velocity of 3300 FPS.
The 300 Grain SMK under the same conditions will drift 14.3 inches with a muzzle velocity odf 2791 FPS, which is my muzzle velocity
I ran the 250 SMK to 3197 FPS and the 300 SMK hits noticable harder at all ranges, no contest IMHO. The 255s will kill Elk for sure, but I am going with the 300 SMK in my Lapua for sure and certain
range it,check the wind, dial in correction, aim and only one shot
