Thanks for reply-
I know what your talking about, and that did not cross my mind.
It's funny how two bullets from the same manufacturer of the same weight and looks perform so much different. of both 155 (155.5?) VLD's one is .437 bc the other is a .483 bc. for Him to keep supersonic to 1000 comfortably he needs the .483 bc bullet to shoot good. He was dealt a bad hand so to speak.
I think he should try the 168 VLD's. No one has any in stock, but I have a box of 60-65 left over. might be able to seat to touch lands.
Why does Remington have such long throats in such a short action cartridge?
This is something Weatherby used to do, good for velocity (with hotter loads) , poor for accuracy
the 168 with a little less speed starting out and .496 bc will also do well at 1000 from his gun.
