338-300 Win Mag

I stumbled across this cartridge recently and now it has my attention.

Does anyone here have one? If so, I'd love to talk to you more about it.

I wouldn't waste my money with it....If you want a .338 caliber, I'd step it on up to the .338 RUM or larger.

If you just want a .338-300 WM, then go right ahead. But if you've already got a .338 Edge, you've already got the .338 game covered.

Why not a 7mm-300WM or just a straight .300 WM?

It seems like a silly idea for me to go with a 338-300, but in reality it's a good idea with the brass availability for the 300 WM.

I've got a spare 338 barrel I need to do something with and money isn't an issue for me.

Why not go with a .338 Federal? That's awesome barrel and brass life, and it's a fun gun to shoot. Not fast at all, but it would last forever.

Or a .338-06 A-Square 40-degree.

I'm using a magnum bolt face, long action so neither of those would work.
