Do I need a 338 Edge? Sound good?

What do you guys think? I'm currently working on a 7SAUM and it should be done soon. It's for a long range hunting rifle, but...

I'm thinking I need a 338 now. You all know how this rifle business is...buy buy buy.

I'm thinking this:

Rem 700 LA
Krieger #5 barrel @ 28"-30"
McMillan HTG stock
BDL bottom metal (for now)
Timney

No you dont need a .338, but if you can afford it you should.

Need? The truth is out to 1,000 yds no one "needs" anything bigger than a 7STW, 7 RUM, 300 WM, 300 RUM, or 338 WM for anything that walks or crawls in North America.

The question is ... . "Do ya want one!".

If so go for it.

This is just a guess but I'm pretty sure it holds true for all of us that if actual true "need" was a requirement before building/buying a new gun each of us would probably only have about 2 or 3 guns.
