Re: 30.378 vs 300RUM vs 325 WSM

The 300 rum is a powerhouse...one of my favorites to drop huge Louisiana wild boar pigs(which are some of the tuffest game)....but if u have a 300 winny, its time to step up to the 338's. Rather its the edge or a 338 rum, both will handle almost anything u throw at them. I am building an edge, but after a little reading I would suggest the rum. Factory stamped brass(u mentioned going to Africa), and you can damn near get the same velocity from a rum that u could get from an edge just by running a long, 30-32" barrel, if the edge if running a shorter 27-28".

I bet the 338 rum or 338 edge will fill the bill

I like the .338 responses. They put you in a whole new legue. one thing to remember about Africa (or so I've been told) is that PH's hate brakes.

I would go for a .338 RUM/Lapua and keep it around 12-13 lbs loaded, so that if need be in Africa, you could just pull the brake off (of course with a cap) and still manage recoil. I feel that the .338's are the caliber for Alaska/Northern Canada.
