338 lapua imp. range report

Got out for a little shooting this morning with my 338 imRp. started at 1600 yards on large rocks, Running 300 OTM bergers pointed .858 B.C . at 3025 fps. 70/44/29.35 were the kestel 4500s conditons. Wind left to right. 6mph . Dial up to 41.75 and 4 moa dial for wind hold. I aimed at the white spot on rock that we always shot at. Its about 1 moa in size, we have Milled it several times. Fired and actual got with in about a couple of inches of my mark perfect hight just need a little more windage!! Man I was happy. Cold bore , first round, almost perfect wind call. I fired 9 more rounds. 2 went a 1/2 moa high and 7 were with in the 1 moa white spot on the rock! Moved next to 1900 yards. Theirs a crack in the rock. Vertical. its 6 ft. The width is 18 inch. Dialed up to 56.75. First rd a little right. Forgot to add some wind. Made new wind call. 5.25 moa . Next 5 went right in the crack!!! Don't now group size but crack is under 1 moa. Its cool to see, because you can see the dust come from in side of the crack! I was having agreat time till I found out I only brought 20 rds. I let gun cool for 15 mins . Took last 4 shoots at large flat rock at 2307 yards. I dialed up to 82.25 moa. Large flat white rock. Car hood size. It puts of good white puffs of dust when hit. Dialed 8 moa. First 3 round neither me/ threw the scope or my spotter threw 20x60x80 Leupold, could see impact? Finally by some mircle on the VERY last shot we both saw it!!! It was High= 1 moa and 1/2 moa left. Had and over all great time burning 20 rds!!! Just thought I would share! The Whidden bullet pointer on the 300 OTMs is giving me about 6% increase in BC from my calculatins.

Very nice job! Do you plan on using pointed bullets for hunting?

What is your load and coal?

NO. You should never use a pointed up bullet for hunting. I am also using the OTM berger 300 gr , for target shooting = yellow box. For deer hunting I use the Berger Elite 300 gr bullet= orange box. Both bullets weigh the same have the same Ojive measurements and the bearing surface is the same. I am not 100% sure about OAL,SHRTSHR . I measure to the ojive and record that in my log books. My Ojive measurement is 3.010 I think. Im on my lab-top right now so i cant give you the OAL of the 338 lapua Imp . right now. If I remeber I will post it tonite when I get home. Its 2 40 Pm in the Alabama sun right now andd it HOT!! My guess on Overall length= 3.900 Oal =Guess!

Re: 338 lapua imp. range report

steeltraps,

Thank you for the info. I have the Whidden pointing tool but have never used it. Was curious if anyone had tried it on game. I am shooting the OTM's and at distance do not feel they would open up on game either.

If you do not mind my asking? What powder and how many grains?

Ray
