Re: Cornhuskers puttin\' the new 338 edges to the test
Well, the rifles lived up to the hype. Started off with a piece of 6x6 steel at 670 yards. The exbal program was off just a little bit with all the data we entered into it so had to use the trajectory correction function once we started hitting the steel. After the new data was entered in, we had first round hits on a piece of 16x16 steel at 1030 and 1383. Also a first round hit on a milk jug at 963. We had a slight 5-8 mph wind from 5-7 o'clock but it wasn't effecting the round a whole lot. Before we started shooting, the highest muzzle velocity we recorded was 2812. That was with 93 grs of H1000. Don't know if that was quite right though, we were having some trouble with the sun beaming down on the cronograph. Anyway, they definitely lived up to our expectations and can't wait to get back out there this weekend and do some more shooting. We have 6 antelope tags for WY this year. Going to try and long range all of them!! So we need all the range time we can get in right now.
I've hunted almost everyday of my life, the rest have been wasted!
