Rock Chuck on 338 Nawakwa

I just got back from out west scouting Elk and had a good time shooting rock chucks also. We were driving around on some of the 4x4 roads spotting when we came across some rock chucks way out there. I got the Wild range finder out to range the distant chucks to see if it was worth digging the big gun out of the back of the truck. After ranging the chucks in the 1500 yard range we started digging out the rifle and bench after 20 minuets of digging we had every thing set up. I started looking for the chucks on the distant rocks and grass there were 5 chucks in view. I ranged one of the chucks and came up with 1390 Meters so I went to my drop chart and came up with 33 MOA for the come up form a 100 yard 0 and with the wind I estimated 6 MOA for wind. We decided on one to shoot at and let one fly the shot was close but I had to make some elevation and wind corrections the next shot was right in there missing by inches the chuck went running to his hole. We picked one of the other chucks that was a little further away and added 2 MOA for elevation and fired spotter said you are a little hi but fire another at the same spot. I put another one down range and it was a good hit the chuck went flipping through the air at least 3 feet high. We packed all the equipment up in the truck and started walking over to where the chuck laid. We hiked for 40 minuets and came up on the chuck the 300g SMK did a number on hem

The Wannahackaloogie connects! Mighty fine shooting Eric! But tell the truth...Cameron pulled the trigger didnt he? If you dont mind I'll answer a few of the questions for folks.

The 338 Nawakwa (AKA Wannahackaloogie) is an improved 338 Lapua Mag. Eric designed this case by his lil ole self and it does lay em in there. Eric was kind enough to let me shoot it in the HG Shootoff in Ohio last month as I forgot to pack enough bullits! Let me tell you it has a bit more punch then my 6.5!

Mighty fine shooting from a first rate guy!

Later
Rob

Eric, CONGRATULATIONS on the long range kill!!! I might have to get me one of those Wannahockallogie's. I might use Rob's 7mm Wannahockaloogie because I can't handle all the recoil.

See you at the Nationals! You are welcome here anytime.
