Hi, first off I am really glad I found this site. Tired of being slammed
on every other site ( jeez sorry I can shoot)

I don't have a dedicated long range rifle, yet, I am using a Rem7
300SAUM right now its more my goto gun than anything. I have a
4-12xNikon Monarch on it. I have shot it and made a drop chart
out to 1000yds, I can hit a 8" square gong @ 800yds 3 for 3
if the wind isn't too bad. almost never here in wyo.
Until I can afford a real gun what would you feel the best bullet weight
for this caliber is for game up to elk? I know 150gr is enough for deer
out to 800yds (for a fact).
thanks for comments in advance

I would suggest using a 180 gr Accubond. Where are you from in WY? Welcome to LRH. You will like it here.

Re: new to site

I'm lucky enough to have family land to shoot on. There is not much public land around Gillette, but there is some blm around that you can go on. It would be best to get a good blm map and you can find some school sections that are not landlocked. I'm sure if xphunter reads this he might know of places. I don't know him personally, but I know people that go shooting with him and talk very highly of him. Good luck, cinch
