If your cheap, go ahead with the cheap stuff (Federal Vital shock, Winchester Super X, Remington Core lokt). If you got the money, shoot premium rounds, Winchester Supreme, Federal Premium, Weatherby Ultra, Remington Premier with good bullets like Nosler Accubond, ballistic tip, partitions,Scirroco, Hornady Interbond. I personally use Winchester Supreme Nosler Accubond 160 gr in my Browning Abolt II composite Stainless stalker chambered for 7mm Rem. Magnum. I get submoa results up to 200+ yrds(depends on me that day but the gun can). No problem with any thing.Partitions got a rep because they were the first of its kind. In my particular gun, in shoots like crap. Accubond is a bonded Ballistic Tip which has the best retained energy, accuracy, and extreme range.
Accuracy. What an incredible way to give yourself a true advantage.
Go to your club and get a bunch of guys together - and put a target out there at 250 meters. Break out the deer rifles and see who can shoot a decent group, even off of the bench, at this distance. I think you will be shocked at how few can do it.
So - with that in mind, I recently set out to try to develop a semi-custom rifle that I could afford and that would shoot - repeatedly - at MOA.
I started with a platform that I love...
