Boretech .338 245gr.

Anybody out there shoot the 245gr .338 boretech bullets thinking about getting some and wandering whether they perform well on big game.

Thanks Nathan.

    According to Boretechs website, this bullet is a solid. Not what I would want for big game hunting.

    How far have you tested them out to? I just picked up some for my 338 LM groups at 100 were 1/4 MOA with 250gr Scenars and just under 1/2 MOA with 300gr SMK's. Haven't managed any groups under 1/2 MOA at 1000. I'm only using my rifle for long range target shooting so expansion is not an issue.

    I have grouped the RUM @ 300 yards 1"- 1.25 the win I have only grouped @ 100. A friend of mine shoots them in his RUM H.S PRECISION TAC. rifle & he gets 1/2 MOA to 3/4 MOA out of his out to 700.
