I am down here in San Diego D16, there are a few big bucks but ya gotta hunt them hard, makes it that much more fun. I hear there are some big bucks in D17 I may put in for that zone next year as it isn't too far.

---this is interesting G1 BC of .502 with a cross wind of 3 mph you don't get into any meaningful wind drift until 500 yards.
Look at the Ballistic tips also, I use the 120 at 3158 ft/sec velocity and the 140 at 3020 ft/sec
and at extreme distances they expand well.

The 120 grain Ballistic tip at over 3100 is deadly on deer at 500+yards and in.

If a 308 can do it why not a 284. Weight for weight a 7mm has a better B.C.
