I just checked mine and it's an 08. I've had 3 of them and one mxlr.
I've had 4 of the 338MX's of which 3 were crooked receivers. One was a good one of which I shot 1 doe with it at 25yds. My buddy shot a doe with his 444 later and when following up the trail crossed the 338 trail and they were virtually identical. Both does piled up after 40 yds after their death run.
My 308MX is my go to deer rifle unless it's raining for which I just picked up a Browning BLR 81 Light Weight stainless in 358 win.
Seems to be the lucky deer gun. Go to hunt with it and something comes out whether it's public land or at the deer club. Dunno how many I've shot with it and most collapse on the spot. Damage looks like you shot it with a 30-06.
Has anyone used the 140gr loads on game as I have a few boxes and but don't want to jinx my gun, lol.
PS I shot at least one deer with each of the 4 308mx's. The last one is the deer slayer. I shot a 4pt buck and doe 15mins apart last year and they dropped in the same spot side by side.
