I have an action, with a Mag bolt face, .532, and long action,
I want to do a good bear, moose, African plains, big cat, etc etc gun,
I would like something just a little bigger than the 338 WM, but don't know if I need the 338 RUM or bigger, and its a touch too long too,
Is there anything in between these two, or should I just do a 338 rum? I cant go 338 edge, because that's even longer than the 338 RUM.
What you all think?
What make and model action do you have? That would tell us a lot more about how much room you have to work with.
I don't understand why you think .338 Edge is longer than .338 RUM. They both use the same case. The only difference is the Edge has slightly less taper and the shoulder moved forward. Load either one to its potential with VLD type bullets and the OAL is going to be the same.
