Is the economy that bad? Ca' on guys, give me your thoughts so I don't have to bug Kirby about this. There must be more info on this.
I am actually considering the 338 based off the 408 Chey Tac now.
Can anyone give me "real life" info on these comparisons?
The 300 Raptor is a fairly new cartridge compared to the 7AM. There are probably a handful of people that have shot both. However, I have helped others work load development for two of Kirby’s chambers, the 338 AM and 338 Raptor. These rifles were built with the intended purpose to harvest elk past 1000 yards. They would not be the best choice for deer mid-range and short-range.
The 338 AX would additionally be a viable cartridge for an overall use LR to ELR hunting rifle with projected better barrel life than the 7AM.
