Re: 30-338 vs 300 Win Mag

They are ballistically about the same but the guys I did the 30-338's for liked the shorter version so when they seated bullets out to the lands they had plenty of magazine for that. Both are very accurate. The 30-338 is very close to the 308 Norma which is also a good one..
Predictions are difficult, especially when they involve the future

Re: 30-338 vs 300 Win Mag

The 300 Win mag has a slightly longer case body (2.196) compaired
to the 30/338 (2.085) giving it a slight case capicity advantage.

The 30/338 does have a longer neck than the 300 Win mag and is preferred
by most long range shooters.

They are very accurate but so is the 300 Win mag so that makes the Win Mag
a better choice because of ammo availability.

If your looking for more than the Win Mag then move up to the 300RUM or
the 30/378 Weatherby.

Ammo is available for both of these with out having to reload.
