    For 500 yards and in the 160 grain Nosler Accubond is hard to beat. It is fairly easy to load for and I had good luck with powders from 4831 to Ramshot Magnum in burn rates. I finally settled on the 180 berger in mine with a fairly stiff load of 7828.

    Retumbo, and fed 215 primers in mine running 168 bergers. This has been a deadly combination for elk, mulies, and whitetail over the last few years. I've killed elk and deer at ranges of 75- 750 yards with the same result each time...DRT!

    180 Berger VLD and a max load of IMR7828 is what works for me. Whitetails go exactly 18" after the shot; straight DOWN!
    Exit wounds are typically silver dollar size.
