My 1000 yard bench rest rifle is an 18 pound 6.5X47 Lapua. It's a JOY to shoot. I hunt with a 7lb 270 win that shoots 5" groups at 700 yards.

Get a boomer if you want one, but I want to enjoy shooting every weekend.

That's my .02 cents.

By the way, we only shot the RUM to 400 yards, but we shot 4 inch groups with 180 Barnes TTSX and 101 grains of Retumbo. We could probably have done better, but that was good enough for elk, and we were tired of getting our teeth kicked in doing load devlopment. Even with a lead sled it was NO FUN...
I can shoot my 338 edge that Kirby built all day and never get beat up. you just need the right brake on it. but i would not want to shoot it much with out a brake. It kicks like a heavy243 not much at all. my 10year old little girl has shot it. it's a little much for her but she has shot it more than once. the right brake is a most for the big boomers
