Re: Taming a 338 Win Mag
Well, I don't know if a .338-06 can pierce a steel farm disc at 325 yards, but my BAR can. I've been shooting BARs of various calibers all my life and the exitholes I've seen have not caused me to wonder what my actual velocity is.
But it is a good question. Surely someone has chronographed a BAR to see how many fps gas-operation takes off a bullet.
Can't be a huge problem or no goose or turkey hunter would use gas-operated shotguns. But they do. And they kill geese and turkeys at extended ranges.
