Re: LR build, which cartridge?

What about Shawn's +P version of his 338Edge? I believe he is pushing the 300's up into the 2950 range.

I'm pretty sure the new 338 raptor requires a .378weatherby boltface. I would run some numbers on the .375rum. Looks like lots of fun the proper bullet selection and good barrel life.

I'm curious about the EDGE +P but don't believe it has been officially released by Shawn. That is certainly one to consider.

Re: LR build, which cartridge?

You could also talk to Kirby about his Ultra Maxx. I don't remember exactly what it uses for a parent case but I'm pretty sure it's based off one of the RUM cases so you would be good to go with your mag bolt face. I believe it also spits a 300grainer out the barrel in that 2900ish range.

I'm sure Kirby would be more than glad to fill you in on exactly what his 338 Ultra Maxx is and its capabilites.

Pretty sure the ultramaxx is an improved version of the .338/300rum,edge whatever you wanna call it.
