Congrats, I shot a few with my 14.7" Wilson Combat 338 Federal. Just wish I had a suppressor that fit the 338.

I saw great results with Federal's power shok (blue box) ammo

I reloaded a good bunch of Speer 200 gr HotCor over H335 in Starline brass

It's effective too, here is a 180lb boar from last night

Gun is running a 16 " midlength Wilson Combat barrel - you can't beat it for the price !

338 Federal isn't going to give you significant exit wounds unless you shoot a fragile bullet through a lean animal.

What it does do is mess up the internals real good (energy dump) and stop'em dead in their tracks

This coyote was shot at 30 yards with 200 grain HotCor

I've seen more remarkable exit wounds from faster lighter bullets - like 6.5 Grendel
