I don't know but, there is a guy that only hand gun shots and kills every thing from prarrie dogs to big game in africa. I can get his name for you, maybe he can help. he's a friend of a hunting club buddy.

Re: new project idea/questions

crispin and mtba i didn't mean to say anything to offend. i just would never have believed a handgun round would be able to retain enough energy to do the job at those ranges. the accuracy would not be a problem i understand that. as you would be shooting from a bench and 1 moa accuracy would do. but from the looks of your data it very well can be done. mtba just kind of blew my mind with the suggest. i wish you both well in your shooting

What is this "handgun"? The name seems sort of familiar. [img]images/icons/frown.gif[/img]

Re: new project idea/questions

1 I think it is possible
2 I have no idea what you would get out of a 338/284 in a 15" barrel
3 At least a 10t but you may need a 8t or 9t

I will have a 338 Lapua IMP the first part of SEP in a handgun. MY goal is to shoot paper out to 1 mile and hunt to a range I feel comfortable with. Here is a Pic of the gun with a diffrent barrel.

Re: new project idea/questions

I think a 9t would work and Krieger makes some of the best barrels out there. I am using a lilja 10t and am hoping for 2500+ FPS I know of 1 guy shooting a 338 WSM and some shooting the 338 win mag. I think the WSM would be a good choice.

Re: new project idea/questions

Looks good Crow Mag, I was thinking a 9 twist would be best, most companies I talked to don't make a 9 twist but krieger said they would make one for $25 extra so thats not to bad.

What scope are you using?

Re: new project idea/questions

I havn't had much to do with large caliber handguns, but wouldn't the recoil on a gun like the one you are talking about be astronomical? Also are you going to be shooting from a rest/bench or standing (not at 1000 yards but while hunting)?
