New Long Range Personal Record

Went out this evening to my honey hole for coyotes with my custom .300 Win. Mag. and got a coyote at 883 yards with one shot. This is a personal best for me and was a great way to top off my hunting season this year. Those 210 Berger's really shoot!

Re: New Long Range Personal Record

That is an awesome shot. One to be proud of. The 300 win with 210 Bergers is a great round for LR and you just proved it. Nice shooting!!

What rangefinder and program were you using?

Jeff

Re: New Long Range Personal Record

Broz,

Thank you for your compliments. I was using a Bushnell 1500 ARC and I use the Bullet Flight M program on my iPhone. I love this program, I've used it on steel out to 1400 yards and it has been right on. For $30 it's cheaper than Xbal and it has done everything that I have needed.

Also, I am aware that you have played with the 230 OTM tactical bullets with 73 grs of H1000, I tried that load in my rifle with a 230 Hybrid and it shot just under a MOA at 230 yards (again measured with the Bushnell 1500), I used a 3.600" COAL as it's the longest I can seat the bullets and still feed them through the magazine. This OAL put the bullets 0.060" to 0.065" off the rifling and they were all really light loads. I have have a 28" barrel and they were running at 2752. I had great luck with 67 grains of H4831 SC and the 230, they shot 1/4 MOA at 230. I'm really interested in the 215 Hybrid and have a box I've been playing with, I was wondering if you have any experience or suggestions for this bullet that you were wiling to share.

Thanks a lot,

BB25

Re: New Long Range Personal Record

At this time we have not tried any of the 215's. Just the 210's and 230's. We hit a good load with ease with the 230's but plan to play with it more this summer. What velocity did you get wit the H-4831 and 230's?

Thanks

Jeff

Re: New Long Range Personal Record

Nice shot....but isn't the .300 win. mag. a little overkill?

Overkill? I don't believe in overkill....then again my daily driver is a kenworth w900l w/600 horsepower Idc cummins and my daily driver when home is a dodge 3500 with a 800hp 5.9 cummins.....I would almost say my 300wsm isn't enough but it will work....

Have you ever attempted a shot on a yote at almost 900 yards? The High BC bullets make your wind calls a little easier. Would a .223,22-250 or.243 have been better? Not in my world. Tomorrow I am taking the .338 LM with 300 Bergers after a few that hang out about 1000 yards from as close as you can get to them with out being busted. Overkill.... nope, just right for the job at hand.
