The BC of the 225 doesent help at 500 yards because of the 200 ft/sec velocity increase
of the 200 over the 225gr.
Calculated drop of the 200 gr @ 500 yards=40" and @ 600 yards=71.2" (1000yrds=353" )
Calculated drop of the 225 gr @ 500 yards= 46.9" and @ 600 yards=80.1" (1000=389" )
So At a 1000yards the 200 still has the edge but ether bullet lacks enough energy for ELK>
At some point the 225 may be flatter but not at 500 or 600yrds. And energy is allmost the
same at 500yrds that's why I recomended the 200 gr at your distance ( flatter and with
the same energy).
If you wanted to shoot farther with a 358 I would recomend the 358 STA it will shoot a 225
gr at the same speed as the 200gr in a norma mag and would be an easy re chamber job.
Just my opinion
