    Hey guy's I made a short video with my savage 110ba 338 shooting some 1" steel. Let me know what you think!

    Had it stayed stationary I believe it would have had a pass thru and much more damage than what you see

    I agree with you 100%, one thing i would like to note is when the same steel was shot by a 7.62x54r round it flew about 3 feet. This time with the 338 lapua it flew about 9 feet, so it transferred a ton of energy. Thanks for watching!

    Sick rifle. The steel went flying.

    I made a set of various shapes out if 1/2" steel on a swinging stand and I shoot it with my .270 and it goes through that up to about 200 m although the different billets make a difference. I usually use the federal ballistic tip 130g but sometimes the soft nose and stuff.

    I would have a .338 if I reloaded but factory ammo is scarce in that caliber in my neck of the woods. I have been looking at a similar setup in .300 win mag because they are readily available

    10-4 on that one. When I got this rifle it made reloading this caliber my only feasible option. Reloading I can get cost per round down to $1.50 compared to factory $5 a round.
