Re: .338 250 grain MK\'s?????
Well thanks for the kind words my friend, but my experiences aren't really "state of the art" as much as they may seem. As far as the 338 goes, I've only got concrete data on the 300 grain MK's and the 225 Accubonds. These Scenars are new to me entirely and they have a whole set of new rules apparently. I'm learning as I go.
When I was testing bc on the 300 grain MK's at 11,000 feet, the bc proved itself time and time again at .820. I think the 250 MK is probably much higher than what they are saying and DC seems to have good evidence that they are in fact higher too.

With the 250gr at 3150 would the 225 accubond hang with it, out there a ways?

Well, that is what I'm trying to figure out. If the 250 MK really is .587 and the 225 ab is .550, there would be no reason on earth to shoot the MK. The accubond would smoke it in drop, equal it in drift, surpass it in velocity, and be only a few ft-lbs less energy. All while giving more consistent close/long range dependability maybe?
Now if the Scenar is truly .675, it would smoke the ab and the MK in every category clear out to 1760 yards! The only thing it would not be as good at against the 225 ab is velocity at 1000 yards but that is of no matter.
The Scenars ballistic capability is what prompted me to design the whole cartridge around it. I'm crossing my fingers that it works on game. MOre testing is in order.
If it's not far, it's boring.
