Re: 338 long range questions?

Why spend all that money? You can buy a 700 remington 338 ultramag. Same performance as the 338-300 ultramag or edge you mentioned. If you want to go top end then you can buy a Weatherby Accumark in 338-378 and gain about 200 fps over the ultramag case. Cabelas in Billings has some like new accumarks in 338-378 that can be bought for $1200-$1300. That would be your best buy.

Re: 338 long range questions?

Bubbagodkin, 338 rum same performance as 338 Edge hard to agree or disagree since performance could mean different things to different folks...just do your homework on the Edge-Talk with Shawn-208-687-2659 he's easy to get a hold of and won't mind spending the time to answer all your questions. Most folks here are deleriously happy with their EDGE...haven't heard a bad word yet on them..Shawn built alot of em for them. Keep in mind Weatherby brass is expensive, 338-378 gobbles powder and unless one has physically held and looked closely at a rifle then I couldn't say it's like new.

Re: 338 long range questions?

Long Time Long Ranger what kind of FPS do you get with your 338-378 and 300SMK and what length barrel are you using to get said FPS???

I have a 338-378 Accumark but have only used 225 and 250 NAB.

B23, I have seven 338-378's in 28 and 30 inch barrels. They will average about 3050 fps with the 300 smk. The 225's get close to 3500 fps. The 250s get around 3300 fps.
