Hi Allen. Not many places in the south to shoot that far but I happen to own a field that goes out 850 yards from my house that is surrounded by miles of timber lands. I have shot 5 deer at 600 to 800 yards using a 300 Wsm with 190 Berger hunting Vld’s. None dropped in their tracks like the Tv shows! I recovered 4 of the 5 and was not impressed with the wounds. I have not tried in about 3 years and try to fight the desire to do so! I now set up steel targets and see if I can make 1st shot hits in various conditions. I have heard that the A max bullets still expand at the lower velocities of long range.
