Hey JWP475 that is a nice rig there Fiber barrel and all but I find walking/hiking at 8500-10,000 ft.lvl my RUM at 8.5 lbs. with a 4.5-14 x44 Zeiss is just comfortable to carry. I think for the average shooter you really can't beat the RUN for performance on game and at the range.

    with most bullet and powder combo's for the rum case you're in the 90-100 gr of powder. i can shoot 112 gr of 869 powder with 250 gr bullets and no bolt lift problems.

    Last time I was at the range I was talking with a guy who was shooting a 338 Lapua. He said that he can't shoot the targets at our range that are 500 yards or less because it tears up the steel so much.

    I would think the 338 RUM would be more popular since there is factory rifle chambered in it, but the 338 Lapua is more of a specailty round. Either one sounds like it would just destroy whatever it hit.
