338 RUM Long shoot

Do you think the 338 RUM could shoot a 250gr bullet with the rifle sighted in at 200yds
going 3000fps to 250yds with out any hold over I know it drops 6.8" at 300 yds.

With my 338 LM I can site my 300 smk's (@ 2780 fps) in at 300 yards and I can aim dead on from 0-300 yards without being more than around 5 inches off.

Are your 300smk's hollow points? Because thats the only 300gr bullets I know of for the 338 cal.

But they work just as well as a hunting bullet and are more accurate. If you think the SMK won't work on game just do a search. The info is endless.

The 300 SMK's have a hollow point from the manufacturing process. They are not designed as hollow points but kill game very well.

I have some 300 gr SMKs loaded haven't shot them yet will shoot them thru a conagraph when I do. You say 2750fps is whats needed.
I have 92grs of H1000 behind them.
