Re: 338 Lapua versus 338 RUM
I picked up a .338 Win Mag the other day, in a Savage model 110
It's nice, but the barrel is to short for my liking, 24" and if I'm going to go though all of the trouble to blueprint the action, ad a new stock and scope, I might as well make it into something that can hit small objects at long distances.
Ever hit a Jack rabbit at 1,000 yards? I'm trying, but they only hold still for the first shot.
Mostly it will be used for shooting paper, with the occasional coyote and such thrown in from time to time.
If I can kill that coyote from here, Will you walk out to get him?
