Being a lefty too, I found a 338 lss here on the board from philny1. I plan on taking it elk and deer hunting. I think the term overkill has too much negative connotation. I think of it as "more than adequate". In my opinion the 7mm and .300 are just to close to adequate at extended ranges.

Too bad you can't get a gun from here in the states, Philny1 had another 338 lh lss for $679 about 2 weeks ago.

help choosing Cartridge

You can import guns from the states or anywhere else, just as long as the rifle is not made in Canada. All you have to do is pay the G.S.T. and is regristered with the federal goverment . I notice that from your screen name that you are from Alberta. I'm from Westlock. As for a Rem LSS Wholesale sports has a few Ultramags for sale. Just go on their website and scroll down to hunting,click on "centrefire rifle" , click on Remington, click on LSS and you'll see a 338& a 7mm Ultramag. They also have 13 others in various models. Left & right handed. I hope this helps.

Thanx for all the info! I guess I should have reworded part of my original post. The guns listed are what I can get and have decided on... the one I really would like that I cannot find is the 300 ultra in the LSS model. (Buckboy - Wholesale sports was exactly where I was looking to buy these guns!) Nice to see another Albertan on here My understanding was that firearms, parts and riflescopes are no longer allowed to be purchased in the states and brought across the border. There is so much confusion apparently that even the customs agents aren't sure anymore.

Hi Altahunter,

I'm from Calgary, and I am happy because I'm not the only one on this forum from AB.
I have a 300rum on BDL, but I havit problem getting one from the wholesalle sport . dID YOU TRIED AT Russelsports, How about the Canadian Tire close to Heritage drive (Calgary) this one is the only one who got licence for firearms.
The guys form this location are great... Just give them a try.
I have friend with 7mmRem, and another 3 with 300rum.
I choose 300rum, because of the power of bullet, and with 200AB you can get easelly an elk at 1K.
338 RUM sound great, if you have in plan to go further 1500 yard and up.
If you can manage the recoil go for.

Hope you will take the right decision,

Chris
AB
