so two questions. i love barnes, do u agree?
and are the ulitmate slams really meant for ML?
i know distance beyond 250 which a VX3 would provide isnt needed, but maybe they would have better lens...?
i just heard the ulitmate has very average edge to edge clarity...
but i could be wrong of course.

If you like Barnes - shoot em... they are a darn good bullet but i prefer Noslers... One of the best to get animal down is to believe in your bullet.

I think you would be better off with the Uslam because of the ballistic reticule - which after you match it to your load it is a great tool...

The V3 probably does have the better glass - but the Uslams is not bad at all + the reticule

Basically yes. The B&C reticle is a series of lines,U Slam a series of dots.
