Save yourself less barrel changes and go straight 284 WIN, necked up 6.5-284 brass.
A 162 gr Amax can dish out a whole lot of hurting power!
Shot a big billy goat(feral NZ) @ 1100 yrds on Saturday,witnessed BTW,punched straight through both shoulders, he reared up a few times and fell over.WICKED!!!
Keep on asking myself why I actually have a 338 LM
Ive had a 6.5-284,in hinesight wished I gone straight to 284 now, would have been on same barrel, two seasons later.
