All,

Thought I'd try the suggestion of a couple of folks for 42 gr of RL15 with a 168 gr SMK.

Does anyone have any drop figures for this load?

I know it will vary some but ballpark would be fine (and helpful) for starters.

Thanks

Paul,

Go to Big Game Info.com and click on their ballistics calculator and plug in all the info. It will figure out a range card for you. BC for the 168 gr smk is .462 and 42 grains of RL-15 will push that bullet 2600 ft/sec from a 26" barrel.

Sincerely,
Dave (Bubba) Thornblom
