Re: big guns means less accuracy

The caliber for Voinidas rifle was called the 30V---An Improved 30 Mag.
It was an older Clyde Hart barrel (30") long that had 1800 rounds through it when he broke the record.
Look in the Sierra Manual and you will see the Pic and target. He shot that in 1997

Re: big guns means less accuracy

I think it is much harder to get a big magnum to shoot well than a smaller cased cartridge. However my use of big magnums has been with relativley light (8-9#) rifles chambered to 300 Win Mag and 30STW. I have a light weight 243 that is a cinch to shoot well. I have a heavy 243 that is a cinch to shoot well. I have never worked with a 30# 30 caliber magnum though so maybe if I did and matched the recoil figures I would find that they are no harder. I think that for most hunters though who hunt conventionally (on foot with 8-9# rifles) that they will find it much easier to get a 280 Remington to shoot tight groups than a 340 WBY of the same weight. Rufous.

Your last sentence said it all and it's true.

You can shoot a smaller cartridged rifle of say 8 or 9 # with more accuracy (Normally) because your not taking the big recoil of a magnum that weighs the SAME.

Now take that mag and add 30, 40, or 50 pounds to it and see just how well the big mags will shoot.
