They all work but you need to qualify your distance...

I'd take the .338 Win every time. More firepower than the .30 calibers, and more range than the .35. Put 225 or 250 grain bullets in it and have fun!

Oh, that Ultra Mag way outperforms the .338 Win Mag from just about every angle...

But like others have said, "How far?". They'll all work, just some better than others at distance...

1. 35 Whelen is a Mauser 98
2. 338 Win Mag Mauser 98
3. 300 Win Mag Savage Tactical
4. 300 RUM Savage tactical
I am guessing 400 yards

.300 RUM.
But, I got a hard on for .338 WM, at shorter distances. Hard to beat either one!!sakofan.. [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]
