So far so good. I made mention that I am using a 7MM WSM
Coyote. I used the advice I've been getting from this site. I dropped the gun off last week to get it pillar bedded to go along with the muzzlebreak and trigger job. I purchased the 162 gr AMAX to use and the H1000 to propel them. But rather than asking, which I dont mind, is there a number you can attach relating to the remaining energy for any given load combination that will ensure kills at long ranges, say 700 ft lbs? 900 ft lbs? Or maybe even a 1000 ft lbs.
I am not inept at working up accurate loads for any gun, I'll take the time and spend the money if needed to assure that the gun shoots, but I am thinking that after accuracy the next consideration would be the remaing energy at a given range.
If there is such a reccomended number? A person could start there before spending the time, energy and expense on an accurate load that wont kill.
The reason I'm asking is this> I have a load for my 7MM Remington Mag that is very accurate in my gun. However I am using a 140gr bullet and am not sure if this is what I need at a 1000 yrds.
Thanks for any input you can give!
