opinion wanted on caliber choice

Intent of rifle is for big game hunting.

Should I build a .338 Lapua or .338 RUM? I know I am splitting hair with performance, just looking for opinions.

Thanks all

    build an Edge +P if Shawn is letting those out to the public yet. Build an Edge if its on a 700.

    If you're doing a custom receiver build a 338 Lapua Improved and in a pinch you can still shoot 338 Lapua.

    If you're building off a factory donor action go 338 RUM if you want to shoot store bought ammo and 338 EDGE or +P Edge if you reload.
