Re: 338 Win Mag elk packing setup
It is an excellent choice and I have a Tikka t-3 light for that purpose weighing 6-3/8 pounds. It does not have a brake and recoil is not a problem at all with that rifle with bullets up to 225 grains. No need to shoot a heavier bullet in the 338 winchester. The 225 Cutting Edge .64 bc bullet at around 2950 fps is the best I have found for the 338 winchester. It is a 1000 yard+ hunting rifle with that load in it. I have taken animals to 800 yards with the barnes 185 grain at 3220 fps with excellent results.
Predictions are difficult, especially when they involve the future
