    Could somebody run the numbers for me and see how far out the 300WSM should kill game.Lets say a minimum impact speed of 1500 fps,27" barrel, and Match Kings, or A-Max.
    Somebody probably already knows the answer to this from real world hunting.
    Thanks.

    Well, I am not sure what kind of game or what bullet, but if you use a 178 AMAX at 3000 FPS at standard air it will have about 1500 FPS at 975 yards. That is also about 900 FPE.
