Re: 338-284 Loads
While I never tried that round, don't limit it as a long range hunting round. Certainly it's no 1,500 yard gun but with the 300 grain MK it would be very deadly out there quite a ways. It doesn't take much velocity due to the very high BC. For example, let's say you launch that bullet at a mere 2,200 fps. You would have nearly 1200 foot pounds of energy at 1,000 yards. The drop would be great (around 46 scope inches) but the energy is still there. Don't underestimate that little cartridge. Have fun and keep us posted on your results.
