After a poor showing by my scope on this year's caribou hunt, I have decided to buy a new scope and probably a rifle to go with it.
The scope I have decided to buy is a Shephard scope http://www.cabelas.com/cabelas/en/te...571&hasJS=true
Check out the link to understand why I am asking these questions.
What I am wondering is how to come up with the particular ballistic co-efficient that matches up to the scope I need to order.
One thing I know is that I need to clock the speed of my bullet, coupled with the weight of the bullet (grains) and probably figure in the amount and type of powder being used....right?
These scopes are specific to FPS and ballistic co-efficient, so knowing how to figure that out is important
Also, though there are MANY posts on the types of guns people use/recommend, I plan on buying a rifle that is flat shooting and far reaching. I was looking at possibly getting a 325 WSM, but all the posts I have read are neither for or against this caliber. From what I have read, it is a flat shooter with excellent range. I also plan on reloading whatever type you guys talk me into
Let me know what you experts think, as I truly feel there is enough experience here to help me out on this quest. Murphy et al...
