Hi Guys

Whats the furthest you have had a 300 win mag out to in NZ? I get about 1350 Yards at 800 elevation but haven't tried any further. Ballistic calculator says thats when i reach Mach1.2.
Going to try a mile with it using 208 ELDM and then 230OTM and see what happens i only have a 24' barrel.

What do you guys load and what ranges you get out of it? On paper and steel that is, not deer.

Haven't pushed mine past 600m but it goes well up to that. Loading 208 ELD-M with 2217 and getting 2984 fps average from a 26" Bartlein barrel. Last time out I dialled 10 MOA at 600m.

Shooter says 1768 fps at 1000m and 23.2 MOA.
