My plan for the rifle is to go Grizzly hunting in 2008. This would be the ultimate use for this gun, will have to try those 325gr bullets. I know the grizzly wouldnt be long range, unless I could find a guide who was up for it. The gun would also be used for elk hunting and maybe a trip to try and redeem myself at moose hunting.
I guess I would also have to see what it would do to a little Oklahoma whitetail.
I am probably leaning on the Kahn, my business has a surplus of WBY brass in 338/378 and 2700lbs of knockdown at 1000yds is damn impressive with a 300gr bullet.
BBL length I would want as short as possible, 26-28" would be nice.
Jsut wanted to see what you guys thought, always interesting to see what people think is the biggest and best of a particluar caliber.

I am just not a fan of the double radius shoulder, not sure if there is anything wrong with it I just like a conventional sharp shoulder. The 378 WBY is a power house though

YUP. I had 3 of them! I have worked more with this caliber than any other. How do 260 Accubonds at 3200 fps sound? SMOKIN'!!! Man! talk about some long range elk hunting. Every elk went 4 feet after being hit.....Vertically.
And no I used actual hunting bullets not that SMK crap [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img] Sorry had to say that! Serenity now!!
