    treehuger49, good for you. I'm also a long time Hoyt fan and looking forward to purchasing one
    of their Carbon Elements. They're sure sweet shooting bows. I've all but given up firearm
    hunting for arc...

    Sure hope he was wearing some form of ear protection.

    Good for you krytar19.

    Sorry the text formatting didn't transfer well but looking at the energy values show at 300
    yards the highest energy level is barely over 900 foot pounds. All other bullets were near
    one-half this.

    Several different powders and bullet combinations will get you to the target. As I said
    earlier, accuracy isn't the issue. Also, as stated, the VMax isn't designed for your intended
    purpose. I hope th...

    At the range you're interested in I feel the .223 is not an adequate caliber. Part of the
    requirement, accuracy is not the issue. Bullet energy is where the rub comes in. For a bullet
    to have proper c...

    It's all about knowing your gun and reload performance. Routinely taking prairie dogs at 600
    yards with .223s is very doable. Using the .300 mag with quality reloads will easily double
    this distance. ...

    Good shooting ropin, detecting a 3/4 moa error in your calculated ups says a lot about your
    rifle, reloads and shooting ability, to say nothing about doping winds.Congrats.

  • Posted in thread: nosler ballistic tips for long range on 03-12-2012 at 05:27 AM
    At that range the bullet chosen will do fine. The accubond is another Nosler round that is very
    accurate and has more controlled expansion. Have fun.

  • Posted in thread: Which Factory Rifle Action is "Best"? on 03-12-2012 at 05:16 AM
    Dillinger, spending the first half of your opinion telling that you're unbiassed regarding the
    Remington 700 action is disingenuous at best. Someone must have whipped you bad with said
    rifle/action. U...
