He didn't give the 338 RUM as an option:
Yeah, but there is MORE room outside the box than inside, and I've always been partial to a bit more elbow room

I didn't stay inside the lines in coloring class either!

Hi AJ.

More rifle chamber in 338rum? From what y know remington is the only one that offer this caliber. If you know other one told me so please. For the powder capacity y was thiking it was 5% more only. But the 340wby still my n1
choice for now.

You are probably right about the rifles. I've never been much of a fan of Weatherby rifles, the freebore always gave me fits when trying to get the absolutely best accuracy out of them. The capacity of the Rum is 110gr and the WBY is 100gr for a 10% increase.

I'd probably have someone screw a top end barrel onto a Stiller action, toss a Jewel trigger on it and throw it into a McMillan or Manners stock. Whichever caliber you chose, it would be a long range hammer.

Good Luck,
AJ

Another vote for the 338 RUM. Plenty of horse power and decent range.
