Simply put, the .338 Win Mag is better suited with bullets less than 250 grain.
Sorry mate, with a 24 inch 1-10 twist barrel. You can achieve 2750 fps in a 228 win mag. I hate those folks that just think. Well a 7mm remington magnum cant push a 175 grain bullet all that fast, Why should a necked up version be any better? Well its much more efficient than the 7mm remington magnum. Im not dissing the 7mm rem mag by any means. I own one. But the 338 win mag is much better than most people think.
Guns I own: 300 winchester magnum, 7mm Rem mag, 243, H&R 22 revolver, BT99 12 gauge, 20 gauge break action. 20 gauge pump, 22 break action, 257 Roberts, winchester super x 1. Wishlist: 308 winchester, 6.5mm-284 Norma, 17 HMR, 7mm RUM, another 7mm rem mag LOL, 44 magnum revolver, 30-30 lever action, 44 lever action.
