My buddy is taking a 338Norma DTS built and accurized by Bryan Litz at AB and Mark at Short Action Customs. Litz made the 300 gr Ammo and consulted with Mark on the headspacing etc etc etc. It has a custom aftermarket barrel relieving gun of its factor Walther barrel and its helical fluted by Karl Kampfeld. It is a sweet piece of machinery.
The gun is shooting, so says Bryan, 1/2moa at 300 yards moving in the 2750 range at the chrono. Bryan made those rounds out of OTM's and we will trying them out in Hollister CA on some swine at over a G Valentines weekend.
I will be using Litz custom 230gr OTM's out of my 300wm AICS. The brown is gonna hit the ground from as long range as we can laze and execute!
seemed like a good place to post this question even though this is an old thread, But just curious what you guys think is the better long range rifle in the sense of power and how portable it is.
The 375 AM or any 375 408 improved with a gain twist barrel shooting the large 400 grain cutting edge bullets.
Or the 338 terminator +p in the lrkm design shooting the 300 grain berger bullets. I know the 375 will create more energy but does the lrkm make up for it in better shootability (not sure if that's a word) but you know what I mean. Or is there something better?
We just took delivery of our second LRKM in 338 Terminator +P. They pack easy in a backpack scabbard. I have shot mine to 2971 yards and pretty much held 1 moa. My wife loves the LRKM and has taken a couple elk and a mule deer with mine and does not want to hunt with my other rifles. Her words after killing her first Bull at 765 yards was " This is the easiest rifle to shoot you have ever owned"

How is it y'all still don't know the difference between CALIBER and CARTRIDGE ??
"In guns, particularly firearms, caliber or calibre is the approximate internal diameter of the barrel, or the diameter of the projectile it fires."
