Lerch, sure a better BC bullet will fly better, but will it kill. Also, in regards to windage, all I have to do is turn the windage knobs on my NXS scope. I would rather give up some BC than kill power.
However, if I am going to shoot past 800 yards, I will go to another rifle that is set up around a VLD type bulet and fast twist barrel. But if I am going to be shooting from 100 to 800 yards, I want maximum kill power and this rifle is built for that purpose. I have had too many varmints crawl back into their hole and larger varmints, like coyotes, get away.
Lerch, I know you said you used a 300RUM with a 125grn BT, however, was your 300RUM rifle specifically built around that bullet? was your barrel twist set up for the 125grn Bullet? The 300 Varminter is SPECIFICALY set up around the 110grn V-Max and 125grn BT with a slow twist barrel, that's why this set up works so well.
I will post a drop chart for the 300 Varminter.
