The bergers have performed great on the small antelope and equally well on the elk. Most shots were shoulder shots with one or two being just behind the the shoulder. I got complete pass throughs on all shots with plenty of damage. The ones that hit bone going in were just devastating. The ones that slipped in between ribs did the job as well but with a less impressive exit. All critter have dropped in thier tracks.
Terjeness, The load I am using in my 338 Khan (should work fine in your 338/378) is 102 grains of Retumbo, Fed 214M primer. This is a mild load only running about 2875 out of my 30" barrel. If you have new bergers which will take more velocity you should be able to work up a few more grains and push them a bit faster.
Thank you RDM416 as well as you other shooters, it is encouraging to read your threads.
As I am considering bullets, have any of you tried Lapua's Scenar 300gr?
I'd like to try a couple of bullets, but hope to settle on one that performs best for me and rather spend time shooting ........
