If a guy compares the 7mm with a 180 hybrid at .675 bc and the 215 berger with a .696 and both doing 3000fps with same conditions things change. Then you can take the winner of the two and up the velocity and compare to the 338 300 grain berger at 2850 fps and decide what you want or need. I would say there are a boat load of calibers that work to the 1000 yards but after that with elk in the equation the 338 wins all day long and only gets better when you get further out.
He was being Sarcastic, and if you really amp up the 300's with the large pills in a improved version they keep up with the 338 in the 1000-1400 type range.Tom punches 2000 Yrds with his 338 LAI,65# rig. Sorry slow on keyboard, hunt the distance
