Re: 338 Lapua versus 338 RUM
Maybe I'm wrong, but as you get to shooting further out. I'm under the belief that the .338's begin to out perform the 30's.
Recoil so far doesn't much bother me, when hunting, I've never really noticed it.
( With the exception of yesterday morning, I shot a coyote and forgot to move my eye back an equal distance to the padding in my jacket. My eyebrow is still sore )
A black bear on the opposite ridge may not be out of the question for it in a couple of years.
I'd like to build a rifle that shoots well above my abilities, then learn to shoot it to it's full potential.
If I can kill that coyote from here, Will you walk out to get him?
