it would be effective on a kudu bull at 300 yds.
the cartridge is not marginal, and a well zeroed rifle would be capable of good hits in the hands of a good shot.
it would however me more emphatic at 100 yds.
the big problem starts from 300 and out.

My Win 70 with Barnes 235gr TSX is dead on out to 300 yds sighted 2" high at 100 yds. I have shot steel at FTW Ranch out to 700 yds with a spotter. That's a real rainbow trajectory and not something I would try elsewhere. I try to keep all my shots at 300 or less with all calibers in the field.
Respectfully the BC on the 235's is terrible. I submit that with the 300 grain Nosler Accubond you've have more fun. There are even better bullets than that and if I were shooting that far I'd be using them.

Hi Bob, how's things going in Wyong?. Down your way a couple of years back but haven't been in NSW since Ebor for the fishing. just getting over some nasty storms up here in Qld, seeing the sun for the first time in a few days. I'm going to NZ in the spring and hope to clean up a few buns while there and perhaps shake the spiders out of my old .303LE (currently owned by my BIL). Cheers Brian

Heard you may have load data for the 500 Jeffery,.....any info would be appreciated. Was thinking 535gr, but already had a response that the 570gr would be a better way to go, not sure why.
