Not a true statement at all. With 180gr or 200gr partition I chase a big brown bear all day long with one.

When I had my 30-338 built, it started as a 300 winmag in a Ruger77. Their mag wells are to short for the 300WM imo.

My memory ain't what it used to be. I checked my rifle last nite when I got home it does not have a 28" barrel it's 30". The rifle is 50" total length yeah it's a big damn gun and probably wouldn't make a good brush gun.
30" .644" at the muzzle weighs in at 11 lbs. The guy who had it made wanted it for long range elk hunting. Originally set up to use the 180 gr NBT which is still a good bullet but with the recent developments of the 215 Bergers , Hornady ELD X heavies and Nosler Accubonds their maybe even better choices for LR. Gotta burn some more powder in this one this winter. One of the more consistent qualities it has is that every time someone else handles it they immediately start whining about how long the barrel is. That is how you separate shooters from whiners, the few that have shot it besides myself understand the utility of it's length after they shot it and quit whining about it. MB

How many big bears have you seen shot to lead you to believe it won't work on big bears?

Not true. I’ve seen it fail to kill a pronghorn also, so no good on them either, and I talked to a guy from Tampa who took one for elk and it didn’t work- failed so badly that he was the only guy in camp to go home tag unpunched.

Sounds like:

1. Idiot shooters

2. Poor bullet choice

3. All of the above


There is no way to coexist no matter how many bumper stickers there are on Subaru bumpers!

For the record, I'm decidedly pro-idiot-shooting. There should be a season, with regs and tags.
