My Big Girl is Ready
« on: August 01, 2011, 12:45:26 PM »
Looks like if given the chance my big girl could bark and
 There could be a dead elk this fall
 225 grain 338 @ 200 yards




coyotes have to be careful too
 45 grain 22-250 @ 100 yards



my seven year old granddaughters target @ 25 yards
 not bad for the gun being a little big for her

you bet bud
She has already said she has an eye on my stainless 243
the 22 was just a little big for her right now and when we go again I am gonna take a chair with me that I can put her car booster seat on it so she can properly rest her elbows on the bench to shoot

Had her fire the 22-250 and it scared her with the noise and the recoil so she isnt quite ready for centre fire just yet
Too bad cause the best shot of the day is just touching the bottom of the red and it was with the 22-250

Nice shooting, Blacktail
The best group my 338 gets is with sierra 215gr bullets.  73gr of IMR 4831 puts 5 rounds in around an inch to inch and a quarter with great consistency.  Although it groups Hornady 225's just under 2", happily it also has the same point of impact as the nosler 225 partitions.  Makes great practice loads with the same point of impact for the noslers as hunting loads.
I like my 338wm, although will admit before I changed out the factory recoil pad (read: brick made of indian rubber), it happily kicked the cr*p out of me.  Found the recoil way sharper than the 375 H&H I stupidly sold.

Peace,
Narly

the 338 was at 200 yards
the 22-250 was a 100 yard target

in that case the 338 is a killing machine. the 22250 best work on.
