300 SMK Vs 300 SCENAR LAPUA ?

Has anyone evaluated the new 300 Scenar bullet against the SMK in 338 CAL ??

Quoted BC is slightly better in LAP bullet but dont know of quality or performance at range yet.

Cheers

DUH

Both will shoot nearly identical. Both will perform well UNTIL they encounter a game animal where the SMK will perform in a stellar manner and the Lapua will most probably pin hole all the way through.

.......as shown in tests by a LRH poster of some renown...

Hey Roy !

Thanks for that. Can you throw any links my way for some reading material ? I cant remember reading the article you mention.

Many thanks

I am not Roy, but here you go.

Scenar bullet failure! No really, it was bad.

Re: 300 SMK Vs 300 SCENAR LAPUA ?

hmmm, problem.... the scenar tested was a 250gr, not 300gr.

its also been shown that the 250gr SMK doesnt always expand well either, as opposed to the 300SMK which does.

Perhaps the lapua scenar`s, are in teh same boat as the SMK`s.... 300`s work but the 250`s dont???

Does anyone have any info on the 300gr scenar`s performace on game? not much on the net at all...

As well as the 300 SMK has proven to perform on game, I would not bother trying any other bullet, until the BERGER comes out.
IF it aint broke, don't fix it.
