Re: BERGER .338 / 300 gr. Elite Hunter ELR Terminal Performance.

Sometime next year I will be looking for advise on what bullet I should begin with for my 338 Edge. I won't have time to play with it this year but I went with a Shawn Carlock duplication and had a Hart barrel installed on my action, 28" long. I hope I get good results with a good bullet. I have yet to begin shopping for a 338 bullet.

Jeff, what is the load for that rifle? Will you share rifle build details?

    The drop moa is about 46?

    It is pretty flat shooting for 300 grain bullet.

    Thanks Jeff. I'm sure I'll be happy with the Hart bbl. I sure love my others.

    That is some good info and I wish I could have got my 338 edge to like this bullet but I didn't have much time to mess with them so I just loaded up the good old sierras for my elk hunt this weekend. When I get back I will definetly be messing with the Bergers again. Broz, how far off the lands have you found these bullet liked. Thanks again for the great info.

    You are welcome. I have found them to shoot from -.015" off lands to .065" off. I really have not had to work much to get .5 moa or better at 300 yards.

    I have seen many .338's that didn't shoot them well at 100. I strongly recommend you test groups at 200 plus if you are fighting a load. I have seen a consistent rifle shoot .75 moa (3/4") at 100 and the same load and rifle still shoot 3/4" at 300.
