Or maybe you're not considering Long Range game taking? Or you're skeerd of the recoil. Shooting a 338 RUM with a 200 gr bullet or less just doesn't seem manly.

Stick a 300 SMK in front of some Retumbo and go after it.

The above is a bit tongue-in-cheek, but I really don't understand and advantabae of a light bullet in a big bore cartridge. Any counsel would be appreciated.
Uh, i thought he was talking about a 300 RUM ?

    ULTRA MAGNUM. RUN BIG BULLETS , 210 GR VLD , 208 AMAX , 210-220 GR SMK AND THE LIKE. i AGREE WITH THE ABOVE POST. THE WHOLE POINT IS TO DRIVE A BIG BULLET FAST. LESS THAN A 200GR BULLET DOESNT MAKE MUCH SENSE IN THE PLATFORM...MIGHT AS WELL JUST SHOT A 30 -06.
