Just found out I drew my first elk tag for this fall/winter. Planning on taking my 7 Sherman Short. Hunting primarily in Iowa, I dont get to test performance of centerfire hunting bullets, so really looking for some suggestions from people that do get to use them a lot. Looking for something that will be capable from 100-~750. I dont intend to shoot further than 300-400, but if the conditions call for it, I want the capability to do it. Looking towards the heavy(ier) end of the spectrum 170gr+ to help with wind (hunting around the Cheyenne area) Plan to use H1000 (for temp stability) Needs to be able to handle a shoulder shot if it happens The easier to load for, the better. My 800 yard range is about an hour drive so weekly trips arent feasible, so I can't be constantly testing. Barrel is 26" 1-8 so I expect velocities from a 175-180 class bullet to come in around 2975-3050 depending on where the node is. .110 free bore (will be mag-fed from a SA 2.950 max COAL) ELD-X 175? ABLR 175? Berger 180 VLDH? Others? Thanks a lot!
