This is probably the 12th elk taken with my old Marlin 444, while I tried the 300 grain Swifts, the accuracy and performance of loading the 265 with IMR has given a 2350 FPS that is accurate and hits like a ton of bricks, have never had to shoot more then once since dark timber is the norm. Perfer the old gun with open sites, seldom ever pull out the scoped 338 unless in the NW of Colorado. Does the job in the rifle and use this bullet for my 44 mag with Unique Powder for long backpack trips in the mountain. Happy camper again.
