OK I know everyone hates caliber debates but what is in your best opinion the best caliber for hunting/long distance shooting? 500-1000 yards give or take?
Yeah I won't take a 1,000 yd Hunting shot because I do not feel it is Humane Too Many Variables. But Zombies at 1,000 give me a 338 either Ultra or Lapua! Don't care about humane with them!The specs as well as the military have proven that the bullet will travel 800 yards perfectly flat but I am not that good of a shot maby happy sniper can teach us. The 338 works great for me from 100 to 400 yards and that is all I have ever need. Although if the zombies ever I would like the same riffle with a 30 round mag
Depends on the grain wt. The 55 grain fmj we shot was book speced at 460 meters, or around 500 yards, for consistent accurate hits. We were told that after 460 meters it would start to lose stability & start to keyhole.Out of curiosity up to what distance can a. 223 be accurate/lethal?
