The .30 cal. heavier bullet is less affected by wind.
150 gr .270 and 180 Gr .30-06 Berger bullets (as an example since we are talking long range) have almost the exact same BC. You would have to go really heavy with the -06 to gain any advantage with the wind. Which gets back to what I said earlier.. the rate of twist then becomes a big factor.
The Jeep has been a lot of fun, but time to come back to my first hobby.. shooting.
