I am going with the ones with a 3 in front. a semi custom does not have to be too pricey here is the run down on my 338 build.
used 700 lh rifle for the action $300
sendero contoured and 338 rum chambered Douglas barrel $320 shipped
Defensive edge muzzle brake
Rifle basics trigger $120
Wyatt's 4" box mag $70
Manners t 2 stock $570
Total gunsmith fee to head space the chamber and fit the break $150
Having a rifle that will shoot 300 gr Berger's in to .6 groups @ 100 yds. and is scary effective @ 1200 yds. priceless
N570 is the preferred powder for my gun pushing the 300 grn @ 2750 6 loads per case.
On the flip side of the coin I also am bringing a 300 win sporter weight gun that is very capable out to 500 yards with the ballistic plex scope mounted on it.
The 300 is the back up plan if you end up with a week to hunt and 30 mph winds make that 1k yd. pile driver next to useless and a lighter rifle would be real nice for timber and tight drainages with long hikes.
