Have you shot a 195 in a saami rem mag? The ballistics vs a 180 Berger going 150fps faster are no better. Get a custom chamber with 250k freebore and now you have an argument, but it's still no better ballisticly.OMG, somebody actually said that aloud!
This isn't entirely true, custom chambers for cases cut with long freebores to accommodate bullets with long bearing surface can make use of this bullet, but unless you have the capacity to drive the bigger higher bc bullets to a high enough velocity, lighter bullets of less bc take up less powder space allowing their velocity to overcome the BC of the heavier round. Now if we're talking 1000+ yards eventually the BC takes over. This is a HUNTING forum, not target. All shooting I am referring to, is ethical hunting ranges, say, 1k on in.indeed, if it ain’t running a 40 degree shoulder and packing 120 grains of powder then I don’t want it!
