Re: MK\'s on bigger animals

As Dave said---It kills them fast.

It blows some tremendous holes in game closer then 1000 yards.

Even at 1050, the deer end up with basketball size holes most times.

We are talking about the 300 gr 338 at 3300 FPS. Anything between 3150 and 3300 FPS is unreal at longrange.

Nighthawk

Killed several elk and deer out west at ranges approaching 1000 yds and extending past 2000 yards with that 300 gr MK.

For the small deer in these PA mountains, and under 1000 yards, lets just say I feel sorry for them when they get hit with it.
I usually try to set up where the ranges "start" at 1000 yards plus, because of the destruction to them.

I have learned,when hunting in PA, if my setup is closer then 1000 yards "to start" with and don't extend to much past 1300 to 1500 yards, I use my 300 Tomahawk instead. Depends on where we go.

When the 338/416 IMP comes out, we are at places that the ranges extend far.

Can't say enough good things about the 300 Sierra MK. and the destruction they provide at the speeds I run them.

Re: MK\'s on bigger animals

I shot about a 450-500 pound trophy Oregon black bear with a 200g SMK out of my .300 RUM. Muzzle velocity was 3200fps and range was about 250 yards. The shot entered behind the shoulder and the bear took a couple steps and was dead. The internal damage was amazing. The bullet did not exit and the bullet weighed 40 grains. Not to good for weight retention, but the trophy bear didn't know the difference.
