I have been researching loads for killing elk out to 800 yds.
What do you recommend for powder, primer, brass, bullets?
What do you recommend for loads based upon the above?
Trying to get 3,00 fps.
Thanks in advance.
Try 67.5-H1000-168berger VLD. You did not say what weight, but this load gives me 2977. Very accurate, low ES, SD. A good 140 load is 68.7 RL22-140, with 215, or WLR primers @ 10/1000ths of the throat. TheTSX is a great bullet to try. Nosler, AB, BT, or CT also shoot great and hammer deer. For the long shots you are wanting to take, I'd go with the 168's.
