Re: Lapua Scenar Performance on game...
Hi Sheldon, it looks like you answered your own question. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img] Use what you are comfortable with,the 250 Game Kings.
I´m not saying the other bullets are worse or better. I have shot one moose with 250 Scenar at 300+ with 338 LM , no problems, they are relatively hard and tough bullets and they like lots of velocity to open up. Now I use 300 MK:s for everything, I´m a "one load per rifle" -type of hunter. Find it,stick to it.
Accubonds are great too, probably more controllable on game but I doubt you have the time to get to know those or any other choices better than the Game Kings that you already know. GK:s are very good bullets. Peace of mind and confidence are important.
I´ve been in similar situations many times, much better to stick to known,reliable things instead of changing something just before a hunt. I think I know how you feel now, you will do just fine with Game Kings. There is no miracle bullet, it´s the hit that counts.
And forget the lion with that setup. Bigger holes and more power are needed.
Good luck,sounds like a great trip to come! [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
