30-338 WINCHESTER MAGNUM

The following data was developed in a Hall Giant action rifle, with a heavy 29-inch stainless barrel from Hart. A Leupold 6.5 20 X scope was installed in Jewel live center rings on Kelbly bases.

We used Winchester brass and the Federal 215 primers throughout our tests. All bullets were molly coated. All groups are 5 shots at 100 yards.
