Re: The big old SMK does it again

Thanks guys.


I lucked out because the 225 accubond and the 300 smk have the exact same point of impact in my rifle so I can use either interchangeably without having to rezero. I had some 225's with me just in case but I really wanted to see what a 300 grain bullet would do on such a thin skinned, light bodied animal. And after seeing what they did to those two moose last year, I usually have SMK's in my magazine now.

The big ones don't get big by being excessively stupid. That is a very nice looking animal.

Hope to shoot mine at 1000+ yds with the 300 SMK out of the 338 AM.
How much have you paid the Voodoo lady in New Orleans to get the wind to lay and what days has she promised you?

Re: The big old SMK does it again

Good lookin goat GG, tell your buddy good job!!!

when did you switch from the 225AB to the 300SMK???? it looks like the bullet did the job. I know i have always been impressed when the that big ol 338 bullet hits a animal, it puts em down for the count

Nice buck. Our season opens in 4 weeks. You'll be seeing some 300 SMK's reports from me as well
