If you are staying within 450 there is no need for a 175 berger the quicker opening 30 Cal. bullets will have better results BUT if you plan on going long shoot what shoots best. I shoot one bullet in each rifle, its not easy to have several loads and become good with each.
Aim small miss small the vitals are not much of a target but if you hit them they are done with what ever bullet you use. If not they will drag guts or their ass shot off back to a hole .
