The more reports I read the more confused I become. To start with, I am shooting a 6.5x284. At this point I have never shot anything but a prairie dog at more than 450 yards. I plan to practice a bunch at 500, then move to 600, and so on. I still know how to sneak up on animals and enjoy doing so, so short range shots are a possibility. The longer range shots on game really wont happen soon, but I don't want to spend a lot of time developing loads that don't lend towards my goal. I have 139 Lapua Scenars and 140 Hornady Amax in stock. The Scenars shoot good but performance on game has been unsatisfactory. Haven't tried the Amax yet. So far I have steered away from low BC mono-metal and bonded bullets. My only concern with Berger is showering my meat with lead particles, but I have not tried them. Is there really a bullet that I can use on animals from 100 to 700 yards and still be able to afford to ring steel with them? Am I stuck with trying to find two different bullets for the different ranges? I tried the Lapua Scenars based on recommendations I got on another site. The results were so poor I will be more careful this time. Please help me out guys.
