The gentleman who I am loading for probably would have nightmares @ 400 yds, but I'd like to prepare for that distance just in case.
The 165 bllistic tip or the 165 accubond will work very well at these distances and can
be loaded to 3000 + ft/sec velocity.
With a 225 yrd zero he will be good to 300 yrds with no hold over and only 2" high at
Both bullets perform well at 30/06 velocitys and the accubond will do less meat damage.
