Bear2, you've got plenty of killing power for elk at 500.

MD, i'm with 475, 208 A-max, 210 Berger, 200 or 210 SMK. whichever shoots best.

Jeff300, i'm with ya 100%. i don't care what the ft lbs. of energy or any numbers say. the 338's just hit a lot harder.

It's a big difference between the two as for as down range knock down power. the big 338's just have the power to knock the living sh!!! out of what they hit.

If your going to be a bear you mit as well be a grizzly.

+1 Well stated
range it,check the wind, dial in correction, aim and only one shot
