why is 300 smk destructive
hello all lurked here a couple years not real internet guru type. why does the 300 338 smk do so much damage to game. my 50 bmg doesnt touch what a 300smk will do at 2850 muzzle velocity. with impact velocity ranging from 2800 to 2000 this bullet to conventional thinking would plow thru and thats it.
i've shot or seen shot 15 deer since i got this gun from 250 to 1250 and it always amazes me. any explanations?
Remember the advice you are giving that you got off of the internet and don't REALLY KNOW works might cause a miss or a wounded animal or a dead hunter. Please for the sports sake be 100% sure when you post something.
Per the NRA "long range STARTS at 600".
If your gun kicks get a brake....and some muffs. Unless your a masochist then its ok. Except you won't shoot as well.
