Re: Large caliber question
The ballistics of the 338 RUM is equal to the Lapua if loaded normally and superior to the 338
win mag. It is easy to load, cost a lot less to by ammo or brass, requires a standard magnum
The 338 Lapua is superior in brass quality and toughness but it is expensive and requires a very
large ( .588 ) bolt face and poshes the .700 diameter bolts to there limits.
If I were to build another Lapua, it would be a 300 Lapua 40o Improved because the 338 RUMs
take care of my 338 needs.
Just an opinion.
