30 cal 165+/- gr mono metal bullets in 300 win mag
I want to develop a load for my 300 Wiin Mag using mono metal bullets like Barnes TX or TTX , Hornady's GMX for hunting caribou. I shot 2 last week with conventional bullets at about 150 yds and made a mess with poor placement - was spitting out lead pieces when I cooked up one chunk of meat. I want high speed because sometimes we only get 300 + yard shots, and yet all of a sudden animals may appear at 150 or less. For years I've been pursuing moose with 180 gr and more often 200 gr partition bullets that don't shoot quite as flat.
I'm thinking the Barnes, Hornady, or Nosler solid alloy bullets might be the way to go.
What are the benefits or problems of one brand or other? Tipped or not?
Is there really that much difference between 165 and 168 gr bullets? I find it interesting that both are offered.
I have to admit I find the Barnes and Hornady with their relief grooves more appealing than the Nosler but I'm open to recommendations and advice.
I experimented with the OLD X bullets, even blue coated ones but its been 10 15 yrs since.
