Re: Largest Or Best Long Range caliber

Let me throw in my 2 cents for the 338RUM--I am biased since I have one that shoots like a dream. While it does not produce quite the velocity of the Lapua or Edge, There is no fireforming required and Remington brass is much cheaper than Lapua. If cost and simplicity are factors, this is a good choice. I'm betting that the bull elk I plan on shooting this fall won't know the difference!
The critters have to win every time, I only have to win once.

Re: Largest Or Best Long Range caliber

Well let’s see I have had 3 of the 338 Lapua including 2 AI AWM's and have 2 338 Lapua AI versions one is a barrel for my 1k competition rifle. As soon as Jerry Stiller gets finished making his new action (Rem footprint that will handle that cartridge) I will have 1 more. I am having a lot of fun with the 338 and will be working on my loads a lot more but 2 weeks ago at the ranch in a 20 to 25 mph wind at 4o’clock after 1 sighter hit the 12 inch gong 5 out of 5. Going to put the 8 inch on to practice this weekend if it gets here in time------the 300gr will slice through the air and the 250 works very well also.[img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
