Re: bullet ballistics

The highest BC pure varmint bullet made is the Hornady 87 gr. V-Max @ .4. That ought to get u out aways (if nothing bigger and better works), with good terminal ballistics.

Re: bullet ballistics

consider the 105gr AMax, they should stabilize in your barrel twists and the much higher BC will make those long shots way easier.

I have also shot the 87gr Vmax out of a 6BR. Really liked them and they worked well out to 750yds on clays.
