I don't know your elevation but at 2200 ft that 200 eldx needs to have a muzzle velocity of around 2500 fps in order to have 1500 ft/lbs at 500 yards. That's cutting it pretty close.I got an elk hunt coming up in November and just finished building my .308 win. Just wondering what bullet I should use. I got a lot of 748 powder and that’s what I want to use. I want a bullet that will be as accurate as possible and still be able to kill an elk at 500 yards. Any suggestions and data would be appreciated.
