best long range 50 bullet for 300y

CVA wolf
I have white hots and 777 pellets

Just ordered 45 hornady 350gr fpb

Looking for something that is accurate, and will still expand at the lower velocities at 300 yards

Although a high BC, he's going to have a rough time getting that velocity from his Wolf.

Re: best long range 50 bullet for 300y

depending on weather, i want to hit the range this weekend... with the hornady 350gr fpb, i should still be at 1100 to 1300fps at 300y
that should be plenty as long as they are accurate..

Re: best long range 50 bullet for 300y

got to the range today to sight in and group test at 100y and crono

2 white hots and the 350 FPB was 1400fps in my CVA wolf, 1.2" @ 100y groups 7x scope from a bipod prone

3 white hots was 1700fps, but not as accurate

3 triple 7's was 1830fps but accuracy was ****... 6 or 7" @ 100y

didnt test 2 t'7s

also need to get some 300gr FPB's to test

painted it...
