Re: .375CT vs .408CT

I would go with a 338 just from the standpoint of bullet selection and availability.
I don't think it gives up that much to the 375, and I am not sure if all the bugs are worked out of the 375 as well.
Good luck with your build.

Re: .375CT vs .408CT

Thanks. I've considered the 338-408 or the 338AM. I've heard the accuracy at extreme distance is outstanding. Im not going for stopping power or max terminal ballistics, im going for accuracy. Pure, raw, no-holds-barred, no corners cut accuracy at extreme distances. To me, being able to place a single shot precisely where it needs to be is much more important that energy.
