I have a 300 wsm 24" barrel. I have been shooting 165Gr interbonds out of at about 3200fps. It has a VXIII 6.5-20X40mm with MK 4 turrets. It shoots very well. This year I was able to take a blacktail (MY Biggest ever) at 737yd this year. I just want to get a little more dialed this year. I know it is not the biggest but the area we hunt just does not have big deer. We have killed about 40 dear out of this unit over the past 12 years and this is the biggest to date so I am happy. My questions are this. I would like to shoot to 1000 for deer-targets, should I get a 10moa base if I want my turret to be zeroed at 100? I know the scope will do it but am courious if I should have the zero a little towards the top of the ajustment? I hope that makes sence. This gun will typically be shot from 100-700 yards on targets. Should I be shooting 180 gr? I am loading them from a mag and worry about case capacity and oal with the 180gr. Untill I build an edge I could be using this for elk. What would be your personal max range for a well placed shot on elk with the 300wsm. Thanks for the help.
