338 lapua and 338 edge ammo cost in Australia

So I was going to buy a 300 win mag for long range hunting on BIG samba DEER, but then a friend said he was going to get a 338 Lapua and I was like N-O, and the 300 only JUST dose what I want, out at 800 meters,
So Iím now looking at may be a 338 edge or a 338 Lapua in APRS Australia
The thing holding me back is the COST of the ammo; I donít mind spending $6000 on the rifle.
So I need Help from an AUSTRALIAN whit experience, what is the cost of 338 edge BRASS and 338 Lapua BRASS.
And anything ells that may help me
thank you

    338 LM brass is expensive, no bones on that one. The 338 Edge brass is just the 300 Rem Ultra Mag brass necked up, which is ALOT cheaper. Bang for buck, you may be better off with a 338 EDGE.

    APRS won't chamber rifles in 338 LM anymore, if I recall correctly, but they will do 338 EDGE at this stage. I rate their rifles, as I use them.

    You might want to consider a .300 RUM or .338Rum. Both will do all you need at that range and be immensely less expensive to feed.

    You fellas in the USA dont realise how good you have it.

    In Australia we tend to use many of the same shooting products, but man, by the time the importers bring them in over here the price often doubles.

    Schabdog, the .338 Edge option sounds like the way to go for you mate
