338 edge 250 grain [email protected] 1-1/2” cast iron plate 200 yards! Entrance and exit holes 3 gray marks are 168 grain .308 out of M1A1. Bought a 1/2” AR500 steel plate to prove that the 338 would go through it to the local gunshop,(well I had to eat a pride sandwich)!!! Doesn’t do much besides splatter the paint off, but sounds like it’d hurt like h—-!!!I have shot Red deer in Australia with 300SMK out of my 338 Snipetac out to 850 yards
The deer dropped dead on the spot
Upon opening the chest cavity the lungs, lever and stomach could nit be identified
It was all a great jelly blob as if a small bomb went off inside
Recovered bullet weight was 29 grains
I have also taken deer with my 300 RUM with 210 Berger VLD match
In al cases match bullets work well for me
I have shot a lot of moose bears ect up here with the 210
I switch from 210vlds when Berger came out with the 215 Hybird and have shot nothing but them many long range moose bears brown and black boos wolves ect with them and have not had anything walk away from a first round hit
Well at 600 yards the 250 grain SMK destroyed everything in a 6” circle around it! From the shoulder joint all the way through and out the opposite butt cheek. Taking back straps and tenderloins with it into the NM mountainside!They're not cheap these days. I am just wondering what would if it hit the plate after it started to open like it would in a elk.
Yes. I use old farming discs for gongs. Double layer of steel welded into Center were the shaft originally went through. My 300 win with 215 Berger shoots through that at 500 yds. Sometimes even at 700 yds. As does my 6.5 Sherman with a 140 Berger. Doesn’t shoot through every time, but it does happen frequently. With the concave shape of the disc I rarely shoot through it.Has anyone tried welding two mild steel plates to see if that would prevent shooting through the plate?
