Dad Puts Elk Down!!! WITH VIDEO

Well got my elk all cut up yesterday and took Dad out hunting in the evening (Dad is 77 years old). Spotted this bull at 468 yards well as I was getting dad set up on him the dang thing came running into about 350 yards. Dad was using my new Rifle itís a APS .338 UltraMaxx shooting 300 SMK at 2840fps these are my fire forming loads when all said and done Iím hoping for right around 3000fps

Anyways the bull step out at 320 yards and dad took the shotÖhe might be getting old but he still has it, he sent the 300 SMK on itís way and it hit right in the neck and thatís was it. Then my work started again. Oh the wife needs to work on her recording skills.

Congrats! Nice shot.

What is a 338 UltraMaxx? Improved 338RUM? Not a 338EDGE?

So, it sounds like that ends up being a 338 EDGE Imp., more or less. Would you agree?

Re: Dad Puts Elk Down!!! WITH VIDEO

Cool video. That 300SMK really puts the whack on elk doesn't it.

The 338 UltraMaxx can not really be lumped in with the term improved. To be an improved you would have to be working with a case that can simply be loaded on the parent case and then fired in the improved chamber. Just as in the 270 Allen Mag the shoulder and neck junction are moved forward and this makes it a true wildcat. This one either needs a false shoulder or the bullets jam seated to hold the case against the bolt face for ignition. The best description would be more accurately as Larry has said, it is the 270AM necked up to 338. You might also describe it very loosely as an 338 Edge super improved + headspace. Once run up to max loads it should have an advantage on any of the 300RUM improved based 338"s.

I have been watching the development of this baby long before the reamer was designed. The name was derived from the fact it is "THEE" max interpretation of the 338-300RUM case configuration.
