What range should I be expecting from a 26" barrel w/ the 7stw? Does this caliber have enough to go 500 and beyond?

Thanks!

Here is a drop chart from the Data on my 7STW....If your gun is accurate enough.500 yard shots on anything in NA should not be a problem..

Using Boyd's data chart and the widely accepted rule of thumb that it takes about 1,000 ft/lbs to humanely harvest a whitetail deer; you will be able to hunt deer out to +1,000 yards with your 7STW.


I normally limit myself to about 400yds with my 7STW because I download

Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1

The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
