Re: .300 Ultra Mag vs. 7mm Ultra Mag
[ QUOTE ]
If you're gonna hunt elk what good is a comparison with 162 7mm and 178 30 cal A-Max bullets?

I agree. The 200 ACCUBOND with its heavy weight 0.308" diameter high BC and ability to expand good and yet not explode makes it an AWESOME big game killer even at long range.
Not sure about the 200 7mm wild cat bullet. Anyone care to share its hunting qualities??
The 200 AB load I use delivers 3/4" groups at 300 yards and using coated bullets I get 3300 FPS with the 200 AB. That puts me right at -183" in standard air with 1472 FPE at 1K. With the size and frontal area of this bullet coupled with its weigh length and SD it is an exceptional 650 yard moose thumper (proven).
If one to were use a 200 7mm bullet on moose at 650 yards, provided the bullet has good terminal performance, it would devestate the moose just as easy.
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.
