Hmmmmm at under 400 yards use the Speedy 66.7 grain flat base 6mm's that are smoking out of my barrel.


Over 400 use the high BC ones!!

Well, what are we considering "high" velocity? How about 58 grain V-Max @ 4500 fps vs. 105 grain Amax @ 3000 fps, with 10 mph wind. Big difference, about to enter into eskimo ballistics:
58 grainer @ 500 yards= 4.5 MOA drop, 4.5 MOA windage
58 grainer @ 500 yards= 23 MOA drop, 13 MOA windage

105 grainer@ 500 yards=8.6 MOA drop, 3.2 MOA windage
105 grainer@ 500 yards=28.1 MOA drop, 7.9 MOA windage

In conclusion, even with the most extreme cases high BC wins again.

I don't know anyone who has had a 338-408 long enough to tell how long the barrel life is. I'm on the verge of putting one together, what do you supose the life is?

Do not know, but with about 145 grains of powder going off behind a 300 SMK seems to me that it will not be especialy good
