I have to admit to being rather new to this forum, but I would like some advice from people who know....Which is better for possible elk and other large game hunting, 300 win mag or 338 win mag?
What about recoil? I have shot 3 inch 12 gauge shells during spring turkey season for the better part of 20 years with no problems. I did once try a 3 1/2 inch 12 gauge magnum, and I thought it was brutal. I have used a remington 700 30-06 for deer and have no problem with recoil. I once shot a friend's 7mm mag and I did feel it had more noticeable recoil. My brother-in-law had a .340 weatherby. I shot the .340 weatherby, and I really thought it kicked.
How do the .300 and .338 compare in recoil to the guns I have mentioned?
What about semi-autos? A friend said that the Browning BAR's are very accurate and he thinks they have reduced recoil by virtue of their semi-auto action.
What about the BOSS system? Does it really work as far as reducing recoil? Does it really help with and improve ballistics?
Any opinions would be appreciated! Thanks.
