Same here, I see no use in having a 'brush gun' in use for that distance. just seems crazyEven then, I see no use in making a 200-yard rifle out of a 30-30...I have no use for anything which can shoot further than 50 yards.
Almost all mil cartridges of that era match up(Dutch, Greek & Italian being odd). Same projected use & same laws of physics.Funny how US and Russian cartridges match up like this. Still think the 308 just trumps both given the availability of rifles that use it.
Ten years ago, testing a 110, 220 & 440 yards we couldn't see a reason to use anything but round nose. In any off these - 30/30, 30/40, .308, 7.65, 7.7, .270, 6.5 carcano. Don't think we tested 7mm Mag & surely not .223. My younger bro will only use round nose in his .270s now.we've had guys try the leverevolution rounds out at teh silhouette range where we shoot 200 yards with them. we didnt notice any difference from standard round or flat nose to the polytip. maybe in the field it would make a difference but we couldnt see any.
