    youve gotten good advise from knowledgable people on the cartridge issue.
    of equal importance is the scope.
    nothing wrong with a 10x leupold, i have several older 12x i still use.
    however you will need at least an elevation target knob if it dosent have one.
    leupold will install them on older scopes.
    best to have both windage and elevation.
    if funds are an issue, you could get by with just elevation and hold over on windage.

    In conversations with joecool last year, I recall he found a load he liked with the 338 Ultramaxx and the 300 SMK in the 2990's fps. He'd been hoping for about that. 30" barrel, if I recall. Lots of variables, obviously. You could PM him. Good luck.
