Re: Sierra Gameking for Sheep
I have not used the 200 GK on sheep yet but plan to in the future. I have ran the 200 ACCUBOND on sheep with very good results. If you want to drop them right now, a 200 grainer does the trick. The only difference between the 200 GK and AB is one has a lead tip and the other has a plastic tip, one is bonded and one is not. The AB is only slightly higher in BC. The fact that it is not bonded is of no concern for thin skinned light boned critters like sheep. In fact for slower than 300 RUM velocities, I prefer the 200 GK over the 200 AB because it will expand at slower velocities than the 200 AB. Sierra quoted me 1600 FPS. This will be my bullet of choice for my new 308 barrel and LR hunting. With its high BC and lower impact velocity requirements, there isnt a big game critter safe short of 800 yards.
In short, my opinion is that the 200 GK is more than adequete for sheep hunting.
Long range shooting is a process that ends with a result. Once you start to focus on the result (how bad your last shot was, how big the group is going to be, what your buck will score, what your match score is, what place you are in...) then you loose the capacity to focus on the process.
