Re: Kirby built 338AM takes down 7 cows 515-1187 yards

Had some pretty sporty conditions on Friday and Saturday-----already have 2k 300 SMK's for my 338 Slowpokes (have 3) . Going to call my Smith tomorrow and let him know the bad news lol---he will be doing all of the work on the tweaking of the reamer design. Will be fun. Was going to build a 300 Jarrett as I have had the reamers, Stiller action, krieger tube, Jewell trigger, HS mag, for almost 2 years now but that is on the back burner for my non wood guns..

    Man, this thread shouldn't have turned into this. It kind of kills me because this is one of the few websites left that is full of some of the most knowledgeable and experienced, stand-up shooters/smiths who offer honest opinions based on experience, testing and many bullets down the barrel.
    Boss Hoss, I respect your opinion, I do have a bit of a problem with your approach on this but still beleive everyone has a right to his opinion and it should be taken as such. You've been one of the best posters here and I've learned a lot from you, as well as many others, EddyBo included. Let's let this tread die down and get back to learning from each other and keep passing on helpful info.
    This isn't a Cabelas forum or some of the "sniper forums" full of longrange shooter wannabes.
    EddyBo, good for you for putting so much time and effort into making sure other shooters hit their longerange marks. I'm sure you've brought few more LR shooters into our fold.

    Well... It looks like this thread has taken a turn for the better, and I for one am glad to see it

    I have never really had a big desire to shoot a 338 or anything more than a 300 RUM. One reason being... I HATE BRAKES ... but this thread sure has got me thinking... this 338 AM is one great cartridge!

    Eddybo, kuddos for all you do for the sport... keep it up...

    Mark

    nice shooting guys. im seriously jealous of ur skills. got a deer today. only at 250yrds. but what i feel comfortable at the moment with the .308 on big game.
    what i dont understand is i thought it was mentioned that you pay up to 1k for a hunt. woooooow. spend 2k, fly to nz and we can go shoot as many tahr in the most extreme country you can imagine. no tags no limits no rule no anything but fun....

    Wow! that's pretty wild!!! No fees or tags or season to hunt. How do you get up there, by helicopter? I hunted Red Stag in NZ and had a great time. It's such pretty a country.
