Q: I’m looking for a good big game bullet for my Winchester Model 70 in .300 Win. Mag. I’m not too thrilled about the many intricately designed, sleek spitzer boattail long-range bullets that seem to be all the rage these days. I want a good, strong bonded-core bullet that will be reliable on all manner of big game from red deer to eland.
A: Blimey mate, you don’t have to look far for the kind of bullet you want. Check out Woodleigh’s semi-pointed 180gn PP SN. It is designed specifically for the .300 Win.Mag. An acquaintance of mine has used that bullet in his .30-06 on all manner of African game with complete confidence. It should be even better in the magnum.
