My deadliest is a plain Jane Remington stainless sps 243 95 SMK at 3200fps shoots inside. .5 moa with a..... Don't laugh, leupold vxr 4-12 with moa cds. Rifle basic trigger. Recently I have been cheating on my faithful ol shootin iron and I am trying to fall in love with my 6.5-06imp on a Rem action, Lilja 27 inch octagon barreled with a 5-20 NF SHV and some matrix 160 bullets, at 2930fps. Lit by a jewel trigger.
Can't forget the 13-24ish Harris bipod.
I used to think 600yds. was a wolf's comfort zone. If you got closer they moved out. It appears now that maybe that comfort zone is closer to 1000 yds. Maybe it is changing because they are being hunted. What are you experiencing?
I drove within 611 yds of one last winter on a snow machine and he was laying down howling. He didn't even get up until the rest of the pack started howling. They were another 600 yds farther away than him. They finally all left. All I could see was the single's head so no shot. He didn't get too excited though. It seems things are changing now.
Currently my 6.5-284. However, I am working a 243 that is not finished yet. I have a ways to go but testing a few loads it is sure easy to shoot. Interesting to see the 243 responses. I originally started putting this rifle together for my wife. It is the one with the Sightron scope. I am shooting 105 berger hybrids right now with 46 grains h1000. Results are promising.
