Congrats on the clean shot, Ankeny.

Can you tell me what twist & length barrel you have, and what powder you used? I am putting together a 30-338 also.

Re: First Long Distance Shot on Big Game - On Purpose

It's an older Douglas with a 1 in 10 twist, 26 inches long. I am using 72.5 grains of H-4831 SC. FWIW, I have so much leade in the tube that I am going to the 200 grain Accubond. I can seat the 200 grainers .005-.010 off the lands, have a bit over one diameter in the neck, and still function through the magazine. What more could a guy want?

Thanks for the update, and the powder charge weight. Same powder I was planning on using. Mine will be a 26", 1-12 twist, dedicated to 180 grain bullets.
