Hey guys, Took my .338 edge out this weekend and got it bloody for the first time. A little over kill with the 300 gr Serria MKs but I needed to do some shooting. I have only put about 70 rounds down the barrel, mostly just close range paper, certainly no drop data or testing to be able to shoot such long range. I was able to conect with 3 rock chucks with a first shot hit at 420 yrds. A hit at 320 seems easy now with this gun. Final kill was at 500 yrds and took me 3 shots to nail him. I was using a drop chart published in guns and ammo for dial up and was very close. I'll now have to work on actual figures for my gun and load. These were my first hits at any range over 200 yrds and while they are not as far as what is capible from this caliber for me it was certainly a sucessful first step in long range shooting. It was such a blast to see the aerial acrobatics of a rock chuck when blasted of their perch. I had to go conferm the kill and set them back up on the rock just to hit them again. Had to stop by the ground squirrel fields as well to thin them out a little. Normaly use a 10-22 and burn up 1,000s of rounds but I broke my reciever so had to use the next gun I had avialable. A M94 6.5X55 Sweede with the old style Hornady 140gr A-Max does quite the number on those little criters. All in all a good weekend for shooting out here in the NorthWest. I'll see if I can retrive the photo's of my cell phone since I broke my camara as well.
