Re: Rock Chuck on 338 Nawakwa

Chris We saw 12 Bulls one day most 5x5 1-6x? They were tarring up the small trees with there horns. On another day we saw a herd of around 40 Elk with some small bulls and another herd of around 30 with some nice bulls.

338 Nawakwa is a 338 Lapua IMP Tight Neck Minimum body taper pushed the shoulder forward to the max and throated for the 300g SMK bullet.

We were shooting at an elevation of just under 10,000 Foot above sea leavel

    New extractor from BAT fixed it. No problems now. Shot an 8.8" 45 and a 7.0" 43 at the last Ohio match.

    See you soon.

    Thanks for the info.

    Is there a picture of the rifle and the round on the forum that I could look at. Those heavy hitters facinate me.

    Crow Mag,
    Awesome looking rifle,what brand of action
    are you using??? what kind of load's and
    velocity???? for the sierra 300mk. The reason
    I ask is because I am having a 338Lapua mag
    Imp. built right now (not a 338Nawakwa,love
    the name)One more question how long is the
    barrel.
    p.s. we were hunting in an area that look's
    virtualy identical to where you were at but
    we were in northern Utah.
