Re: Undecided on a new Cartrige
I have shot one Bull Elk, 318 B&C points and I used a borrowed 300 win Mag with a break. It was pleasant to shoot, it shot about like my old 7mm-08, would that be a fair fair estimate in the felt recoil/
For those of you who have a 300 WM did it come with a break or was it an after thought? Does the break make a big reduction in the felt recoil?
As far as distance, I bought a Leica 1200 new in the box. For the first time I got a real look at what 400 yards looks like. Thats a long ways out there for me. Thinking back to last years Antelope hunt, I extimated my shot at about 225 yards.........with the range finder it was closer to 175 yards. It gave me a huge apprecitation for the shot you guys take..............I ranged a rock that was 724 yards..............CANT even imagine shooting somthing that far away.............This is all so new to me, and a real eye opener, so for now my first goal is to take anything at 400 yards.
This is way I keep putting off going up to Idaho to hunt with my father in law..............I only have a .243 AI.
I appreciate your feed back and the 300Win mag seems the way to go..................
Question what does your 300's felt recoil compare to with a MB and does the MB cut a lot of the felt recoil out?
