The choice has been made to go after elk with our new 260. I am currentaly getting 3 inch groups at three hundred yards with 140 grain VLD Bergers .I am rounding out my first 100 rounds through the new cooper, so hopfully The group will tighten up a bit, but might not as the gun is 1-9 twist. If I end up not being happy with the accuracy or terminal performance of the bergers could I get some suggestions on a back-up bullet. Accubond is second choice but I am worried about my wife to be, slapping a bull in the shoulder instead of behind it. should I rule out 130's as to small? we will limit our max range to an ethical yardage, If we can wade through the wolves. I am coaching her on the impotance of bullet placment.
