hello, My dad has a stw in a sendero. I was wondering what you guy's think he should be shooting for long range elk. up to 800-900 yards. His gun shoot's the 162gr. amax like melting butter. But I doubt this bullet will hold up to an elk shoulder. Not that I think that if you hit him he would run real fast but I wan't something that penetrates a bit better. It could also be used for white tails at the same time so do you have bullet suggestions. Berger vld, accubond, what. Thanks for any info
I dont know who ever came up with the imaganary word of "Over Gunned"
I 2nd the 160g accubond. It will probly shoot better then the barnes, and the BC is higher anyways. Should be able to shoot almost as good as the amax out of a sendero as well. Would definately work out to your maximum range stated.
Location: The rifle range, or archery range or behind the computer in Alaska
Re: 7mm stw elk bullets
+ 1 more for the 160 AB
Long range shooting is a process that ends with a result. Once you start to focus on the result (how bad your last shot was, how big the group is going to be, what your buck will score, what your match score is, what place you are in...) then you loose the capacity to focus on the process.
