Yes it's possible with 180's. There was just a thread on this a while back. My brother was doing this for a couple of year when he had a 300win. He was using data for 200 grain bullets. Shot very well.Is anyone using retumbo with 180 gr ab in a 300wm? I am seeing guys running it in the heavys 200+. Is it too slow with the lighter bullets? I want to try to reduce the powders that I buy thanks
Yes it's a compressed charge but it'll go like hell. His rifle was doing 3100 fps on 200 grain bullets with retumbo and over 3150 with 180's. Great accuracy but it recoiled plenty stiff in a #1I would say it's too slow for the 180's. H-1000 is about as slow as I would go for 180 grainers.
Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1
Nightforce is such a solid combo of reticle, available elevation, glass that is good enough to shoot at the longest range you can dial. Nightforce has bullet proof construction that can handle the incidental horse rolling or some other rodeo action. -- bigngreen
The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
