Very good info here!
For 200+ yard plain old target shooting, I use both the SMK and the Rem. Core-Lokt…168gr preferred.

Gotta like that. Now I want one that would handle 1000 yard match shooting….so it would obviously be a different rifle….but for now, I’ll just keep playing in the 200-yard range lol. Been a very long time since I took a truly long range shot anyway. Even if the rifle would handle it I’m not sure I still can!
Anyway, kudos to this post! Great reading on my fav rifle caliber :)))
- Federal Fusion is an excellent choice for both barrier busting and terminal performance. It is also readily available at any sporting goods store.
- Remington Core-Lokt is readily available at any sporting goods store and is a very good choice as well.

Having said that, as a LE or military…
