Re: Long Range Loads for 8 x 57
I'd say the 200 SMK is probably the best bet for what you're looking for here. It's a true Match bullet and will handle these types of ranges quite well. You might try Varget or 4895, or possibly 4064 for best results. these were the powders I usually used in testing these bullets, and they generally shot quite well. Very easy bullet to get along with, too. It's not at all tempermental in the 8x57mm.
