* This is not entirely accurate. In Colorado, in 1992, I was hunting elk with an experimental lot of Winchester Fail-Safe bullets, 250-grain .338s. The new slugs were very long, and when I went to clear the chamber at the end of the day, I realized that the bullet ogive was stuck in the leade of the rifling. I did not succumb to panic. I left the bolt handle up, assembled my B&M rod, gave the tip of the Fail-Safe a tap, and out it popped. After that I didn't chamber a round until there was a bull 25 yards uphill from us and it was time to shoot.
