Re: Long shots for \'lopes with 30.6, what bullets? Buckeye Generally when we speak long range we speak of using a heavier bullet. As a general rule, the longer the distance one shoots the heavier the bullet one shoots. Heavier as used here tends to equate to a high(er) Ballistic Coefficient (BC). For me the choice between using a 125gr bullet or a 150gr bullet is fairly easy, I'd use the 150, in fact I'd opt for a still heavier bullet. At 250 yards it really won't make much difference but eventually the distance will get longer and the bullet will need to get longer and sleeker (heavier).
