Bought a Remington 700 LRP in 338 Lapua Magnum this summer. Added a Nightforce 20 MOA base and rings along with a Nightforce 5.5-22x56 NXS NP-R1. Worked up a load with the Sierra 300 gr. SMKs and 91.5 GRS. H1000. Load is shooting 2687 fps and grouping less than .5 MOA at 500 yds. Finally got a chance to try it out on game this weekend. One of my hunting places lets me shoot out to 750 yards by shooting from one ridge, over a short ridge, to a third ridge. Conditions were right one the deer were using the far ridge. The first deer was a doe yesterday morning about 10:00 a.m.. She was feeding on top of the ridge at 535 yards according to my Leica 1600. I dialed in the elevation adjustment from the Shooter program on my Droid Bionic. With just a slight breeze from my right I shifted .5 MOA and touched off the shot. I recovered in time to see the deer flop to the ground. The shot broke the spine just above the rear of the lungs. The deer flopped for a bit so I fired a second round. With the deer down but erect the second bullet entered behind the shoulder and took out the top of both lungs. The exit wound from both rounds were only about 2 inches in diameter with the spine shot laced with bone fragments. I returned to the same place today hoping to to give the 338 another test. I didn't have to wait long. A little after seven three deer came out of the woods and started feeding along the open ridge. I let them feed hoping to get a little more distance. When they started feeding over the crest I figured I better do something. I ranged the lead doe at 580 yards. There was no wind so I dialed in the elevation and held high on the shoulder. I checked the bubble level on top of the rear ring and concentrated on a smooth trigger pull and follow through. By the time I got the scope back on target the deer was down. The bullet took out the spine and splinters took out the far lung. I watched her ribs rise and fall a couple of times then stop. The other two does ran when the first one fell but stopped a after just a few yards and looked at the fallen deer. They started walking back to check her. I ranged the bigger one at 545 yards and took back 3 clicks on the elevation and settled into the cheek rest. I put pressure on the 1.5 lb. trigger and rocked with the recoil. The deer rolled 50 yards down the steep hill and came to a rest. Again the bullet broke the spine and hit the lungs. This bullet made about a four inch exit wound high on the back. The Remington 338 LM worked great. I'm pleased with it so far. I just need to stretch it out some more. That could happen sooner than later. When I hiked to the top of the ridge to dress the deer and drag then out I noticed that if I shot in the opposite direction there was a hillside on the next farm that I could shoot from 1000-1200 yards. Time to start trying to get permission. Oh, and I just bought a Savage 110 LR Hunter in 6.5x284 that needs blooding before the season ends.
