I don't have one but a 338-300 WM is viable..

More than a 338WM
More than a 338-06 A-Square
Less than a 338 Edge

Do you want a belted magnum 338?

If you want something in 338 less than an Edge and more than a 338WM and are willing to wildcat, shameless plug for a 338/26 Nosler

    I say go for it, there nothing wrong with having two .338s Many people have different cartridges of the same caliber...

    Sorry, you didn't specify you had an action already...You just said you had a spare .338 barrel sitting around.

    I think that's what I will do. Simply necking up 300 WM brass to 338 sounds pretty cool...plus having it long-throated would give some pretty sweet performance with high BC bullets.

    1) Easy to get brass.
    2) No major brass work (simply neck up)
    3) Long range performance

    what's not to like?

    What is the parent case for the 338/26?

    The parent to the 26 Nosler is the 7mm RUM
    The parent to the 7mm Rum is the 404 Jefferies

    The 404 Jefferies begot:
    RUM
    WSM
    WSSM
    SAUM

    I think Ruger SM, Dakota, some Lazzeroni and some Allen all had origins in the bloodline.

    The 375 H&H begot:
    Almost every belted magnum design with a .532 bolt face.
