Re: Long Range Varmint Riflles

i have a 243 vls and ive only used 95gr smks and it loves them and drives them out at about 3000 and ive never had a problem with them. i set mine up with a nf 20 moa rail burris extreme rings a 6.5-20x50 leupold scope and a brake so i can watch my hits at 100 with it on 20 power.

    Hornady .224 BTHP 75 grain. It shoots similar to a .224 Scirocco II 75 grain. You have a cheap varmint bullet that allows you practice and then switch over to the expensive medium game bullet during deer season.

    I'd go with a PAC nor barrel they are tough and not to bad turn around time on them either. I'm going to get a couple soon one in 243 AI another 7mm stw another in 284win or 7mm wsm.

    I see a lot of light bullets suggested. That's a no go for long pokes. They may work, but you'd be better served with heavier, high BC bullets.

    .223"=75Amax, 80Amax, 90VLD

    .243"=105Amax/VLD, 115VLD

    .264"=140Amax/VLD, or maybe the 123Amax, especially if it's one of the smaller 6.5mm's, ie. creedmor, grendel...


    My favorites: 223AI-75Amax at 3100, 243AI-105Amax at 3200, and 87Vmax at 3300
