338 YOGI 300g Deer Hunting Story
I got out this after noon and set up the portable bench and started glassing, the snow covered land scape for deer. They would stand out and be hungry with the 10"to 12" or snow on the ground. I was out for about 1 hr and then I saw one in a clearing. Got the Wild on the deer and ranged, it was 900 meters ranged it agene to make sure of the range still 900 meters. Walked over to rifle and got my drop chart it called for 20 MOA of elevation. Checked the wind 7mph switching from 7:00 to 7:30 the chart said 4.7 for 10mph wind from 9:00 so I used 2 MOA for windage and 19 MOA for elevation for the tale wind and put the cross hare from the Nightforce 8x32 scope on set on 28 power on here just behind the shoulder sinter mass and pulled the trigger. The 338 YOGI gave a loud bark and I watched the 300g SMK impact the deer's side. The deer fell over and I loaded a round just in case the deer moved. I watched in the scope for 5 minuets the deer was down for good. Loded up and drove down to see how the 338 300g SMK worked. On arrival I noticed the exit wound was 3" but couldn't find the entrance wound. When I got home I skinned the deer and found the entrance wound it was a small entrance. I found a piece of jacket on the skin by the exit wound 1/8" by 3/4". This deer died quick and the 300g bullet worked very good I will keep using this combination of cartridge and bullet in the future one more believer I will post photos of the woond when they get developed.
