Re: 338 Ultra Mag vs 340 Weatherby

There has been more forgotten about the belted magnums than any one knows about the ultra mag case. That belt has caused more discussion over the years than it is worth. I have never seen the belt cause an issue in any way and can not see how it could hurt accuracy. I have nothing against the ultra mags, in fact I am having a 338 weaver built (almost same as the 338 edge). It all comes down to the rifle and the shooter. Practice, confidence and a well built rifle that fits the shooter is what makes it all happen. I often wonder if to much time and money are spent on something "different". Maybe if we spent all that time and money at the range we would not have to waste time on something different.

We should all thank Roy for popularizing high velocity cartridges. If not for roy, this might be the 30-30 iron sights forum

Ditto that.

Big Bore,
We wouldn't gun nuts if we didn't have our biases right [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

I am clearly biased towards the wby's because all the rifles I've handled have shot better than anything I had previously..

But to add to this. I will be adding a few of Kirby's works of art as well. Specifically a .270AM, 7mm AM and a .338AM and I wish I could order them all now.. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]
