Re: need a new bullet for my .300RUM
I'd try the Sierra Matchking, they're about the cheapest match bullet around. My ballistics program lists the B.C for the 180gr SMK as..
.475 @ 2800fps
.496 @ 2200fps
.494 @ 0fps
.565 @ 2100fps
.560 @ 1600fps
.629 @ 2100fps
.624 @ 1700fps
.608 @ 0fps
Lapua scenars are good target bullets and have great B.Cs for thier weight (0.547 @ 0fps for the 185gr) but they usally sell for $5-10 more than the sierras.
J E, How much do the ballistic tips sell for over there? here they are $30/50 with SMKs $40-45/100
Old aunts used to come up to me at weddings, poking me in the ribs & cackling "You're next". They stopped after I started doing the same thing to them at funerals.
