Question

I just purchased the Vortec, NW Magnum, 30" barrel. I would like your opinion on the BEST combination for long range shots for deer/elk

I.E., Pyrodex or Tripple 7? How much powder and what size Powerbelt bullets? With the right combination of powder/Powerbelts, how far will this gun shoot? Also, what do you reccomend for cleaning/storing the gun - hot water, Birchwood/Casey Gun Scrubber synthetic cleaner - Bore Butter?
Thanks for your help. Mike S.

I use 100 grains of American Pioneer powder in either stick or granulated. I use a 245 gr bullet. I use power belts but not in OR. I am still researching bullets that meet OR rules. I can hit the kill zone consistently @ 200 yards. I haven't tried further as this is the max at the range I use. The AP powder is water clean up so I use bore butter and rinse it with hot water and dry it thoroughly a day before shooting. During season I only run a dry brush through it and don't clean the barrel unless I get it really wet. Good luck, hope this helps.
