Maby e as not that moch knoleag on the 338 round sins it not use alot around here. The guy was a sold man, he have a fee 338win in stock but just not pushin for it.
E told me to go for the 300ultra if i want to go stronger. Not sure to want the 300ultra but the 220gr rond nose hornady interlock e sho me for reaold sur look interesting. Could use them for hunting and shooting.
What would be your chose beatwin those 3 cal? As for a first long range rifle? For shot around 500yrd max? Wich is my longer possible shot may by...
Can not buy 2 rifle and realy want to make the right choose. That why im asking so much question.
They are all capable of killing big game at 500 yards.
It all comes down to what you like about each, 3oo win mag has the least recoil because of
optimum bullet weight. The 300 Ultra mag has more recoil than the 300 win mag and the
flattest trajectory of all three, and the 338 Win Mag has the most recoil and downrange energy
for the largest game.
So if you are going to hunt deer only I would recomend the 300 Win Mag.
If you are going/wan't to use the 30 cal 220gr round nose then the rum would be my choice.
If you are going to hunt Elk size game at 500 yards then go with A/The 338.
They each have a place that they perform well.
