The 338 RUM and the Edge are near twins so take that one off the list.

Mine is actually an edge throwing the 300 grainers at 2730 with good case life or 2845 loaded hot out of a 24" barrel. I played with the 250 grainers when I first got her. Worked up until I got up above 3000 and then stopped and switched to the 300 grainers. I can not imagine going back. But......it's all good and to each there own. this is my first 338 but now I can not imagine not having one.
