Re: 3 custom rifles what calibers?

Well since you already have a "338 something" i would go with my two favorites. First the 7mm STW. You can push a 168g Berger bullet over 3200 fps and take any north american big game with this cartrage.

Second i would go with the 243 Super Rockchucker. It is a 25-06 case necked down and shoots a 243 bullet. I am shooting the 90 grain bergers at 3600-3700 FPS. Although sutible for deer sized game it really shines on varmits. I would not consider this to be an extreame wildcat. If you handload there is nothing to it.

Personally... I would go with...


223 or 22-250 varmint

260 rem

And if you already have a 338 then dont know about the 3rd, maybe a 300rum, or if you dont mind having to 338's then a 338 norma mag or edge...
