Yep, take all the sport and fun out of it. Not to mention how many things that fancy junk can't compensate for.

600yrds 9.5 moa up from 100yrd 0, 2moa windage correction
These calculations are close and will interchange with the 87grn vld, the 95grn vld at 3200 will have slightly less correction and the 95grn classic hunter at 3200 will take a little more correction. The 105 amax around 3125fps will have less correction than all others, if its a 1/2moa rifle getting on paper, even a 12" square at 600 isn't all that difficult, I am now using a 6br in 1000yrd IBS holding .6-.8moa at 1k yrds.

I was thinking along the lines of a 105 BT for less winddrift...???...at about 2900 FPS.

Ballistics chart says it will have to come up 11 MOA over my 200 yd zero. Thats 44 clicks..and thats a bunch....lol

I have a 6BR also..but seems I cant get enough free time to shoot the darn thing

You should be able to get 3000-3050fps pretty easy with 105s and H4350 in a 26" barrel, but the amax may be the only 105 to stabilize.

The only other 2 bullets that will work is the 95 and 107 SMKs and the 107s are ify like the amaxes, the 108grn BiB is by far the best choice, its a high bc flat base but almost impossibleb to find.

105 A-Max, 41-41.5gr (work up) of IMR4350, Lapua brass, and a Fed210 primer. Should get you around 2950-3000fps.
