Re: Rifle for my Caribou hunt
I'm going to suggest the 338 Norma Mag. It was developed to be optimize 300gn bullets in 23.5-25" barrels. You can send a 300gn bullet at 2750fps from a 24" tube w/o over pressuring the rifle. It will give you a ton of versatility and enough power to take down the biggest grizz. You may want to consider it.
