Re: How much gun?
Yours is a similar question to the first one I posted on this board mine was about the 300wm vs. the 300um vs. 30-378...what I was told by several of the more knowledgable people was that you should no compare the same weight bullets in different cases, but compare the performance of heavier bullets in bigger cases to the lighter bullets in smaller cases. (I hope you understand what I'm trying to say)
I originally looked at 180gr bullets in the three rounds and the boost I got in the bigger cartridges wasn't worth the costs involved. What I was told to look at was the bigger bullets, 220smk, in the bigger cartridges. Thats where you get the performance boost.
I hope this all makes sense to you. Whether it justifies another rifle or not is up to you. It is hard to really compare apples to apples when there are so many things you need to look at.
