338 AM is ~ 500 fps faster than 338 Edge/338 Lapua with the 300 gr SMKs.

The 338 AM is in a different league compared to the Edge & Lapua & RUM.

Yes it is and it's based off of the 408 Chey Tac case not easy to obtain and it is expensive.

The 300 win action magazine will need to be lengthened for the 338 Edge or Lapua. and is most certainly not suitable for the 338 AM

The magazine well will have to be opened up for the 338 Edge and the 338 Lapua. The action is not suitable for the 338 AM that round is based off of the 408 Cheytac case which is based off of the 505 Gibbs. It require a larger action
