    My youngest boy took a couple of boar that were around 300 Pounds at about 200 yards with my 6mm Rem. with a plain old 100 grain Sierra Game King about 17 years ago.They were both DRT Bang Flop kills. I killed a big sow back in late April with an 8mmx57 150 grain Hornady Interlock. Those aren't fancy bullets but they do the job and for a lot less money per shot.

    For what it's worth, and this is not exactly an apples to apples comparison.

    A 150 gr Game King shot from a 30 06 is out of gas at 500 yards at around 1150 FPE, and that's longer than I would shoot in any case..



    But compare that to a 190 gr Accubond Long Range, it carries about 60% more energy at 500 yards at around 1800 FPE. Yes it is 40 gr heavier so it is not an apples to apples comparison... But its efficiency is impressive.



    Even more impressive is that with the 210 gr bullet from a 30-06 at 2600 FPS at 500 yards you have nearly 2000 FPE still... that's a thumper!

    Well, crap...........I wasn't expecting that much of an increase. If I buy these new boolits, I've gotta buy a new scope, too. 12X aint gonna cut it no more.

    It's so refreshing to see a .270 owner with understanding and a sense of humor.

    Well, with Linfinders skill level and the added benefit of the high BC bullet, I'm thinking he could pull of 150 with no problem.

    Gotta admire a man that handicaps himself with cartridge selection and pushes the envelope with success.
