Re: 338rum or 7rum for longrange
Have you ever thought about the .300 Jazz and .284 Jazz? The .300 will push the 210 Berger 3150 easily, and the .284 should do amazing things with the 200 Wildcats. Both cartridges are based on the .338 Norma Mag, necked down and improved of course.
There is always the 30-338 Lapua Improved and the 7-338 Lapua Improved. I am looking at the 30-338 Lapua Improved pushing the 240 SMK for my next build.
I mention these because it sounds like you will not be needing to buy factory ammo.
