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.

Re: 338 YOGI 300g Deer Hunting Story

One more belever. I just got home form hunting up north and got another deer. This one was in a big field eating. I had set the portable bench on a rise in the south end of the field. The deer came out of a swamp in the north west corner and started moving out in to the field I ranged with the Wild and came up with 1110 meters with little wind 3 MPH at 4:00 the doe stood in one spot eating as I set the scope for elevation and windage 29.5 MOA up and 1.25 MOA in to the wind. Asked my spotter for another reading from the Wild he said still 1110 meters. I put the cross hair on the does chest just behind the shoulder and pulled the trigger. The deer ran 25 yards and fell over and did not move we walked down to get the deer. On arrival found the exit wound it was smaller then the last Deer I shot about 1 1/2 in after gutting there was good results inside bullet worked as expected.The bullet went in-between the ribs going in and hit one rib on the way out. The rifle was my 338 Yogi with 300g SMK.

Re: 338 YOGI 300g Deer Hunting Story

Crowmag, if you don`t mind me asking, which ballistics progam are you using and windometer? It seems as though they are accurate and you have gotten it down pat. Congradulations on the long range kills you`ve been making lately.
