Well, Ive decided to go with the 6x47Lapua case shooting a high .500BC rated .243 bullet for my 450-700 yard PD rifle.

I like the ballistics of the 105Amax for my proposed 450-700 yard shooting because of it's high .500BC. When compared to the 87grain Vmax, it actually shoots faster at 500-700 yards, but hits a lot harder because of its heavier weight. It also has almost identical trajectory as the 87Vmax, but better wind handling qualities.

But, does it expand good enough for PD is the question?

It has a BC of .524 plus you can push it faster?

djp,
Thanks. That answers that!

Worker,
Can't use VLDs for PD hunting. It'll just drill holes through em.
