Winchesters have quite a bit of length in the mag, but mine will have more than usual.... It's being built on a long action!!
Ooooooo I can't wait!!!
Before anybody jumps my case, or starts in on the whole 230 Bergers thing, I am only running Bonded bullets in my hunting rifle. It's a personal choice. I have no experience with Bergers, & I'm not knocking them. I just like what I like, & I trust my Accubonds.
I KNOW I KNOW, I have tons of room for longer bullets, but I don't want to run 230 Bergers.
I may look a little closer at 200gr Accubonds, but I'm guessing that the reduced velocity would keep me in a very simmilar max range for proper bullet expansion, & kinetic energy as the 180.
Someday when I can afford it, Ill get an Edge built for anything longer range than the 300 running Accubonds can handle.
I like to keep my self in check, & operate within what I feel are mine, & my cartriges effective range. If I wanted to go longer, I'd have a different cartrige, not a different bullet.
