    Exactly, I was confused on cartridge selection for this game, fire till you have 10 X's

    Maybe but in 12 years nobody ever shot a ten X at that range. I thought when I went and shot it with JD that it would be a walk in the park but not so much I guess.

    I don’t know what a high master is. Sounds like karate? Don’t like these rules huh. I like the fact that there are so few rules.

    Depends on the wind.

    Explain please. Which does better in the wind? It’s usually a swirly vortex Willy nilly situation. In a canyon. Always some. But not steady and not consistent

    I see that your from Wyoming. Where is the range? If it’s Laramie, the wind never stops. I would consider a heavy weight rifle with at least a 7mm if it’s always windy. I’ve spent a lot of time hunting and camping in Wy, the winds are tricky just like here in NM.

    Don’t blow nothing like Laramie

    It’s over by lander. Ain’t like its gusting 35mph. Just ever changing swirling stuff. I was toying with the idea of my 7 saum. Figured a 180 going over 3k might help compensate for my wind skills

    No cartridge will compensate for wind, but the higher the BC and faster you can push it the better it will do in the wind. My friend that got me addicted to shooting LR says "you only have 2 friends BC and speed."

    Sounds like a little research between the 6 Dasher and the .300WSM. Barrel life will probably be close to one another. I spent a couple of months in Laramie last year. Storms and winds popped up quickly. Your winds kinda sounds like my place over northwest of Rawlins.

    For the 500 / 600 F-Open shoots, I shoot the 200-20X bullets. I use 61.3grs of H4350 with the bullet seated 18 thousandths OFF the lands..

    If money is no object build a dasher! I have a .308 that shoots 3/8moa, it’s not tight to some of these guys of course but I built it economically, remy 700, Heavy varmint barrel 1/12 twist, 26” length, reset into a Promag Archangel stock, with Burris XTR II 4-20x50 glass in Burris rings and a 20 moa Leupold mount. I did this over a couple of years watching for components used or on sale. I have in all about $2000, retail more like $3500 but it’s a heavy beast and ultra accurate for a combination shooting piece that I do hunt with!

    Build 2 rifles. A small 6mm with 107-110's for no wind days. and a 300WSM with 190's or 200's for windy days.

    That is what I was considering. My 7 saum. Pushing a 180, 184 over 3k. Curious whether it would straighten out some of the curves. Perhaps turn 9’s into 10’s. Still gotta learn to read wind but man is that slow 105 a drifter in the wind.

    7 saum will heat up quick. At that (short) range I'd go with 284 win.
