So I have this hunt coming up and I need your highly knowledgeable opinions on what bullets and possibly even what loads to use for my rifle. I will be hunting White Sheep, Kodiak Bear, Bou, and Wolverine all on one hunt. Shooting distances are anywhere from 25 yards to 600 yards(I am a good shooter). My rifle right now is a Remington Mod 700 BDL in .270 Win, with a 26 inch tube, KDF muzzle break, see through mounts, and a Tasco 4x12 scope. Now I have used this rifle for the past 15 years and am real comfortable with it and it has never let me down but man Alaska thatís something else! I have shot a passle of white tails with it, a bunch of them in the 170-180 class and never had any problems with the 130gr Ballistic tips I have been using. Do you think those will work for the game I am after in Alaska? If not what do you recommend? Also my rifle is blued and has a wood stock, do I need to get a synthetic stock and some sort of coating or should I just get another rifle all together in stainless with a synthetic stock? Also my guide mentioned something about not liking people with muzzle breaks, should I mention to him that my rifle has one, I really have a soft shoulder and canít handle the recoil!
Thank you in advance for all of your suggestions and opinons.
