Re: 30 Cal performance on Elk
I meant to post this for ballistics for the xp-100. I emailed Kirby and we talked about the 300 vs the 338 dakota, and I see the max loads and velocities posted in my reloading manual, but I was leaning towards the 300 Dak in favor of being able to load smaller bullets for central tx deer and varmint. I also will be Elk hunting in CO with the XP and so thats also a large part of the info I need to find out. I would like to be able to take a bull at up 800 yrds, given weve seen them from 600 on out. Terminal performance at 800 plus from a pistol on a bull elk is going to be a challenge, so Im leaning to the 330. Any thoughts would be appreciated.
Ballistically Speaking, Im about a 300 FP with a BC of -1.
