So I worked up some new loads. 300 grain speer @ around 2200 fps. Speer manual suggests that shots up to 150 yards can be taken. 150 yards velocity would be 1660 with 1800 ft pounds of energy. 200 yard velocity would be 1504 with 1500 ftpounds of energy. I think a 150 yard shot on a elk would be ok. would 200 yards be pushing it? What type of game are you guys taking at long ranges with a 300 grain load?
