That is of course is your opinion and preference which I respect, but to imply that monos in the same weight class as a cup and core bullet have lower BCs is simply not true as a blanket statement, and belies a lack of understanding about copper vs lead as a bullet material. Copper is compromised to a limited extent on having a lower density than lead, so to make a copper bullet the same weight and shape as a lead core it has to be longer. When bullets reach a length beyond 6 calibers in length, there is a weight limitation on copper bullets. That by no means that their BCs can't be higher than a lead core of the same weight, and in fact most Badlands Bulldozer hunting bullets do that. Witness the 150 gr .277SBD2. It's G1and G7 BCs exceed those of the 170 gr Berger with a 20 gr lighter bullet, which, in fact is an advantage in that the light bullet can also be pushed faster. We believe the 150 gr .277 SBD2 to be an excellent if not superior 1000 yd bullet. If you haven't used the Badlands Bulldozers on game or shot them to 1000 yds, your opinions and generalizations about monos, although valid to some degree, must be viewed in the context of limited experience.Where did the op go on this thread ?
He said 7 mag, but never confirmed "rem mag"-- and never said what altitude.
Even the 162 eldm shows 1900fps at 1000y and 1350 ft lbs when I punch numbers in for 8000' msl out of a 7rm.
I'd choose a cup/core bullet for 1000y for the lower expansion and higher bc than a mono
