from the vid...
The Dartman and the neighbor take down a big o' male coyote at over a mile.
We believe the 300 made the hit. This is our shot data.
The 300 win mag - 2768 fps with 208 amax = 3.490 second time of flight.
The 338 papua- 2778 fps with 300 berger = 3.019 second time of flight.
The 338 should have hit about 0.4 seconds before the 300 and making us conclude the 300 made the kill.
300 win bullet drop @1860 yards=84.5moa or 1645 inches=137 feet of bullet drop. Energy at target-484 fp.
338 lapua @1860yards=65 moa or 1266 inches=105 feet of bullet drop. Energy at target-1012 fp.
I didn't see this before, but WOW!!!!! what an amazing pair of shots!!!. Both shots are simply phenomenal given the exceptional range and significant crosswind with additional hat tipping to the 300 Win shooter.
The 300 Win shot being *spot on* on such a very small target is absolutely impressive to say the least. Those fellas are both superb marksmen no doubt about that.
From the vid, the 333 Lapua shot looks to be maybe a 'yote-sized body length off - AT OVER A MILE AWAY!?!?? Simply incredible.
Noting the ballistic data, I was quite surprised to see the 300gr out of the 338 Lapua was actually flatter shooting (at a similar velocity) than the 208gr out of the 300 Win. That illustrates to me the 300gr in 338 is a flatter/better trajectory weight than the heavier .30 cal. which really is surprising.
I didn't think 208gr's out of a 300 Win would be too heavy for caliber and I'm not saying/thinking 208gr's out of a 300 Win is a disadvantage... However, at these exceptional distances *any* short-coming would evidence itself. It's really interesting that the 300gr out of the 338 Lapua is a better/flatter trajectory with a much larger energy payload.
