Good info on the heavier bullet, I have heard that about the 210gr with the 7mm, but hadnt heard the same with the 300wm.
I agree, its gonna be tough to hit the vitals at 1000 yards. I got one 2 years ago at 450 with my 243wssm with the a 6-18 nikion bdc scope. Its a great scope, but the circles would be a huge field at 900 yards, and the 243 wssm drops like a brick out that far. I have seen some pretty big bucks out at about 800-900 yards, that were impossible to close the distance on. I am trying to set up the 300 win mag with the same scope but with fine crosshairs and target turrets. I feel if I can get the group to shoot sub moa at 100 yards, I should be ok or close at 900. Weve lobbed hail mairys at em that far before but couldnt hit em. They diddnt even move, so i figure if i am a little off on the wind, i have a shot or two to compensate.
I think Ill load up some Bergers at 185gr and the 210s and see what i can shoot the better group with I think with the Bergers, I will be ok with slower speeds if it comes down to it too. They are suppossedly supposed to expand really well at all speeds. Generally I try to stick to the "i need to be above 1000fps" rule to get optimum expansion out of the bullet. Anyone have any ideas or info on that?
