    Ive been reading all the posts and have found them quite educational. I plan on hunting bear
    and whitetail this year with the 8mm. I think it'll do the job just fine as long as i do my
    part. Sent from...

    I change my middle sons rings to a set of Leupold quick detach. Much nicer then aluminum. Just
    a thumb to tighten. Great for iron sights.

    Yards, Meters. It (the sight)was designed for 40gr standard loads. It you use Hyper velocity,
    your POI will change. Any ammo change will change POI.

    Sad part is the OP has not been around since 6/2

    Don't get me wrong. The .30-06 (7.62x63) is a fine round. It just for some reason gives up
    power when you shoot over 180gr bullets to the 7.92x57 in commercial rounds and especially
    reloads. The plus ...

    8x57 Heavy Ball or sS 198gr have a supersonic range of 1094 yards before it drops below
    supersonic. Even by todays standards, that is quite impressive. A scope cammed for this round
    is easily an 800 y...

I was researching the BC for the 338 vs 7 mm debate and I decided to look up your favorite .366:

Nosler 250 gr. BC .494

Nobler 286 gr. SD 307. BC .494. Accubond

Woodleigh 320 gr. SD 341 BC .457

With these high BCs, they just might turn the "potato checker" into a longer range weapon. Worth a try at least...

@Gonzilla
I never checked my comment section. I do love the 9.3. I use Speer 270gr sp and Hornady 286gr sp. I use the 270's on whitetail, but they are addiquite for black bear. The Hornady have a BC of .410 and an SD of .305. With a 150 yard zero in my x57 at 2100fps MV it packs 2100fpe, at 200 yards -4.4" and 1900fpe, 250yards -11.8" and 1715fpe. A slight hold over out to 250 yards and it is still a wrecking ball. I'm fine w/ it at 150 yard max and iron sights.
