    I have been lurking around here trying to decipher which bullets seem to work and which ones do not seem to work for long range application. Most of the threads are intertwined with short, medium and also long range bullet information vice just long range information. Since this is a long range board more or less I would appreciate it if you could take the time to provide input......Maybe even someone interested in other calibers will start one of these threads for them as well.

    So, now to the specifics:

    A. What game have you personally harvested at greater or equal to 700 yards (verified with ranging instruments/devices) using a 30 caliber bullet?

    B. Which bullet (along with weight) and rifling twist did you use.

    C. What was the approximate muzzle velocity of your load.


    Thanks in advance for all the responses.

    I have shot 1 coyote at 775 yards with my 300 RUM. 200g SMK at 3200fps. My twist is a 1 in 10" Saw a yote across the canyon, my dad rangefinded at 775. I dialed my scope to 775 and let one go. I shot high, should have known because it was slightly downhill. The 2nd shot I put the cross hairs a little below the belly and that one hit its mark. Sent that yote twirling in circles for a few seconds before he died.

    Meichele, looks like you´d vote for a 200 accubond out of a big .30 cal. as general use/ all range bullet ?
