That performance can give us some indication of how difficult it might be to place the bullet in the vitals or the bullseye. As you will see, with the increased sample size, we still see the trends we see when looking at the ten specific rounds that we will compare and discuss, which should give you some peace of mind that the graphs and discussions that come from them are an accurate representation of how these two cartridges compare and contrast. Thanks for reading and offering your observations! Its dangerous to attempt to exceed published velocities. Nobody makes a factory round with those ballistics. Its only weakness, is the. Ideal for game weighing up to 100kg, but capable of tackling game weighing as heavy as 150kg 330lb , this projectile produces wide wounding out to 650-700 yards, though performance is limited by wind drift.
. A big part of the reason these little 6. We are not looking to crown one cartridge as superior to the other. When you login first time using a Social Login button, we collect your account public profile information shared by Social Login provider, based on your privacy settings. I think the calibers are so equal in performance and commonality that little remains a factor in making a decision. The momentum of the bullet is another indicator of penetration, and it goes hand in hand with the sectional density and is the topic of the next section.
Your friend might have been misinformed by his outfitter. Most of my hunting friends shoot from. Perhaps modern bullets have equalized things? It doesn't matter whether your donation is big or small - it makes all the difference! Always exercise due diligence before purchasing any product or service. The was not the first, and is certainly not the last, large-capacity cartridge to fire. We have also added in a 400 yard marker for further comparison. Yes, it can punish the shooter but with heavy tactical rifles and even potentially the use of effective muzzlebrakes the recoil can be managed.
The concept of short magnum rounds was to provide the power and speed of magnums but allow the cartridges to be used in lighter rifles. Bullet Selection Correct bullet selection is necessary for the. Maximum range for fast killing is where velocity reaches 2350fps. As far as being able to get deep penetration, both of these cartridges are well suited for the job, based on the data presented here. There are more inexpensive, accurate rifles on the market today than ever in history. Sometimes a significant body hit with a big bullet can discourage and turn an attack, but as many have learned the ahrd way, only a central nervous system hit can ensure dead-right-there.
Ideal for large, tough, hardy game out to moderate ranges of around 200 yards, the 200 grain A-Frame is a reliable performer. While recoil has never bothered me, I shot 416s the lesser recoil of the 7 Mag is inviting and a viable reason to choose it. Magazine Capacity: Almost always higher in a 308 compared with a 300 win mag rifle. Both fit 30-06 length actions. Extrapolate that bullet energy to ever larger bullets and you see the potential for more tissue destruction and potentially faster demise. Ruger has nailed the concept and produced a very nice gun that is heavy on versatility, while giving up very little of the longer-range performance and may represent the best. The 165 Partition driven at 3230fps produces violent performance on game weighing between 80 and 180kg 180-400lb out to 680 yards, also giving excellent penetration where raking shots are to be encountered.
But my professional career did not take me in that direction. This is a fair comparison that I would like to see done. From the muzzle out to 200 yards, all of the rounds group pretty tightly together but we do see the two. We should make a note for clarification: this is a list of the best. But I have always enjoyed the writing of those who have. Both produce enough recoil to influence a shot, especially when you have been shooting for several hours where fatigue can set in and especially if a less experienced marksmen is holding the rifle. On impact, this kinetic energy is transferred to the target where it causes damage to surrounding tissue and organs.
This round offers a decent ballistic coefficient though not as high as some of the others, but it is also one of the least expensive. As he said bullet drift is not as big of an issue as velocity and B. On light framed game, killing can be quite delayed, requiring the often quoted 90kg resistance, also producing adequate results on game up to 320kg when used as a cross valley 300 yard type load. These projectiles really come into their own on heavily muscled animals. If you get a decent chance at your game at a less than perfect angle, you want a bullet capable of reaching the vitals. The build features mounting places for multiple optics or quality of life electronics for precision shooting and tactical needs.
It is difficult to seat 150gr bullets out of the short neck of the. Life has a way of limiting our options. For big game hunting, the Hornady 200gr Precision Hunter is a great choice. The 300 is more expensive to run than the 7mm the 300 is better at long distances the 7mm in my opinion seems to be more accurate inside of 400 yards in Wind is cheaper to operate and has less recoil. So in a way the 300 Win Mag sits between the 7 Rem Mag and the 338 Win Mag, for a hunter in search of 1 big game rifle compromise.
Among those stacks of bullet boxes are and Tipped Triple Shocks, , and Partitions, and Swift A-Frames and Sciroccos. Not to mention ease of reloading or access to ammo, and overall cost effectiveness. These days hunting is expensive and limited. Besides trajectory, the bullets ability to resist drag and wind resistance is also a factor in helping accuracy. But for new hunters: 308, every damn day of the week. A great projectile that produces fast kills with no fuss, as suggested in the Federal factory ammunition section.
At the 300 yard mark, we still see the rounds interspersed, but we do see an increase in the difference between the averages of the two cartridges. The 180 and 200 grain A-Frame bullets are simply brilliant moderate range large game bullets. A difference of over 40 %!! What I wrestle with is the lesser recoil of the 7 worth trading for the greater frontal area of the 300? The 180 grain Partition goes further, giving fast kills on game weighing up to 320kg 700lb out to 700 yards 1800fps. I am a simple man of 79. And while their names are similar, we are going to dive deeper into their performance specs in this comparison.
