I’m going to have another 338 Edge with a more pack-friendly heavy sporter contour in about 27" finish length. I am wondering what bullet would be best for elk. When I plug the numbers into the ballistics calculators, the 300 SMK blows most of the others away with regard wind drift and energy but the impact velocity is so slow I don’t know if it will open up on game. The 225 and 250 Accubond also drop below 1800 fps at 1150 yards or so. This doesn't extend the range of an Edge a whole lot more than my 300 Win with 210 Bergers. I believe 1800 fps is what Nosler states as the minimum impact velocity. Am I all wrong in my thinking? Lighter bullets would make recoil more pleasant also. What are everyone’s thoughts? Thanks.
