It's the wounded ones that you gotta watch out for. If it's only got a hole in one side of the block beware!

I've been getting asked this a lot, I'm totally up for this! Just have to find an engine first, maybe I can get one cheap at the metal scrap place. I'd be interested to see if the 338 could punch through the engine block at distance.

even if it didn't fully penetrate the engine block, i'll just about bet it would still knock some hunks out it and still do quite a bit of damage!

Awesome energy from .338 Lapua at that range.... seems to be right up there with the .50 BMG. Also seems to be about the same price per round. Id like to get a rifle in 338 someday, but the cost per round has to come down some first.

And please, shoot an engine block....love to see the results

Nice shooting! I would try it with my 30/06 but I have the 4x fixed power scope dialed in on it. The 4x scope will allow me to shoot as far as I am able to recover the deer. You could have recovered the cinder blocks even if you missed them by six feet.

I think not an engine block but a running engine on a stand. See how many it takes to kill the beast
