TTAG reader Accur81 put our female firearms expert to the test with the following:
I recently purchased a Savage 110 BA 338 Lapua with a 1:10 barrel twist. I currently have the stock 20 MOA base installed. I’m planning on purchasing a Viper Vortex PST 6-24x FFP or second focal plane scope or similar with US Optics 30 mm rings. What ammo would you suggest for informal 1000 yard target shooting? I am planning on purchasing the 300 grain BTHP Lapua round, but Midway USA just sold out. I’m also curious if the aforementioned round would be appropriate for long range (300-600 yard) elk hunting, or if the BTHP round would be too fragile to ensure adequate penetration depth.
