.338 Yellow Bastard FASTEST 338 Caliber on Planet Earth.

Maybe this has been here before, I'm not sure. This .338 seems to be a monster. So what's you thoughts on it..? Do you think this is taking an idea to far? Or not far enough.

Kinda reminds me of the 375/50BMG I used years ago. 5300fps with a Barns 250 grain solid.
Fast it was but MOA it was not!

Sounds like the 338 Talbot (50BMG necked to 338). I do not remember how fast it pushed the 250's but it was way up there.
