All this when I am firmly convinced the 338 RUM and more certainly the 338 Edge would be more than I'd ever need for anything I wanted to do.
CE bullets in 375-400 grains? That oughta knock and elk off its feet and leave a nice sized crater in the hill side behind him.
The 338 Lapua we have is more than we really NEED, but for long range oppertunities i think it serves its purpose quite well. 3 kills with it and the 280 grain LRX this season, my confidence with this bullet is growing fast. I still have a cow tag in colorado around christmas so hopefully we can test em out on elk at 400+ yards before this years hunting season is over.

Biggest fail of 2014 so far... http://www.longrangehunting.com/foru...ea-ftf-128972/
