338 lapua Drop Chart

Any one have a drop chart out to 1500 yards (meters) for the Black Hills 338 LM 300 SMK out of a 26" barrel. This is a PGW Timberwolf.

(Yards with metric clicks would be amazing since I have a S&B scope.)

    Thanks.

    I haven't run them through a crono so I can only assume that I am getting close to what they advertise.

    Not a good idea to assume at 1500 yards.
    Take the drop chart above and site in at 100 yards then put 9 MOA in for elevation and shoot at 500 and see if the chart works to that distance then go to 1000 yards and do the same. Then if you are going out west to hunt you will need a chart that is for the elevation you will be hunting. Temp and Humidity BP also have baring on bullet drop.

    Matt,
    I have a PGW Timberwolf with the 26" barrel.
    Using 92.0 grains of H1000, and seating the molyed 300SMK right to the rifling, I get 2800 fps. I find the calculated drops to be very good after that. I really suggest that you load some ammo yourself, and touch the rifling. I am getting fantastic accuracy, but it is much worse if I back off on the length. I have gotten the Timberwolf to group really well. Send me a message if you want more details.

    Forgot to add. Quickload/Quicktarget lets you chose mils in the trajectory table. Then you can paste them under your scope cover.
    (I have the S&B scope too)
