Re: Is 338 win mag a long-range cartridge
Thanks for the response. Why .338 Lapua? Based on what I'd read here, I started loading 250 gr. SGKs. This was based on the long-range performance of Match Kings, but I don't shoot matches. I hunt.
Based on criticism others have had for the Game Kings, I am now looking at maybe Nosler Partitions or Speer Grand Slams.
I have quite a bit of experience hunting, not very much reloading and zero shooting seriously over 500 yards.
My rifle is a Browning A-Bolt II Stalker with a composite stock, so it's not heavy. Not close. On the positive side, though, it shoots very comfortably, and I shoot 30 rounds or so in a session, and could keep going with no hurt. I quit because the bullets cost damned near a buck apiece Canadian.
