Re: New338 lapua

We have only taken 3 elk with the 300 bergers. Longest shots were 800 and change. All were complete pass throughs with 1 1/2 to 2" exits. All DRT!!! I have taken several before the Bergers with 300 SMK's here is the only bullet that didn't pass through. 526 yards in the crease behind the near shoulder and stopped after breaking the far shoulder of a large 6 point bull.

300 SMK

Re: New338 lapua

Thank you!!! Trying to figure what I want... I guess the bottom line is get a round that shoots well and make sure I put the bullet in the right place....
Thanks

That is the truth. Use what is accurate in your rifle and know where to put it to make it work well. I like the Bergers and SMK's because I want elk dead right there.. DRT!!
