Well I went shopping this weekend with a friend. Hes looking for a larger rifle for Mule deer and bear. We found a couple rifles he liked, one was chambered for the newer 300 WSM
and the other was 338 Win Mag.
Has anyone had any experience with either of theese two calibers? I know that they are not suited for benchrest stuff, but I thought maybe someone might have some ballistic info on theese two.
Unfortunately around the area we hunt for muley's, its very common to have to do a kill shot at about 200 to 400 yards. I have done it with my 7x57 but its not the best choice out there.
Hes leaning toward the 338 because of price, and I cant blame him it was a Ruger 77 MK-II weather warrior stainless w/composite stock for $360.00 new (hold over from two years ago, up here the 338 isnt the most sought after round)
Thanks for any info.
also I have been tinkering with the idea of a Savage model 16 with the accutrigger chambered for the .308 round (what they call a varmint rifle, has a larger stock and heavy bull barrel). Has anyone had much experience with the savages? and opinions in the 308 round?
