Re: 300 SMK Vs 300 SCENAR LAPUA ?

Our experience was limited to targets and NOT game..but at first I was also interested because of the stellar reputation of Lapua and the higher listed BC. I loaded to the same COAL and got slightly tighter groups with the Lapua. But, interestingly, we also got approx. 25 FPS higher velocities with same powder charge...Haven't a clue as to why. I was going to use on game and then did a little research on LRH and found that there is a fairly well established consensus that the SMK's are superior when it comes to anchoring game. If I were just target shooting, though, I would consider using them....$.02 30-338

Re: 300 SMK Vs 300 SCENAR LAPUA ?

Curious as to what slower velocity the 300smk will still open up. Thinking about animals like carribou.
Is anyone finding it necessary to uniform the tip??

Are they likely to shoot ok from my factory mark v weatherby 340??? Pretty sure it's a 1:10 twist.
