Re: Question for Extreme LR 338 hunters
Fair question, and I'll answer it as well as possible.
1) I know there are shorter 338 mags, but I don't want one. I already have a 338 Winchester, there would be no point in buying another.(right now)
2) I want something a little different. So sue me. I think it would be fun to own a 338 that would push a 300 grain bullet at lowly 22lr velocities [img]images/icons/rolleyes.gif[/img]
3)I've got big boomers, now I want something smaller. In a 9-10 pound gun, the 338 Whisper will only generate 5 ft/lbs of recoil.
4) Imagine it, 17 inches of barrel, nice and thick.
5) Given my hunting restrictions, about 300 yards, isn't any gun over a 243 a "waste" of money. Not to sound uncivil, but there is a difference between a better cartridge choice and a waste of money. I'm asking for bullet performance, not cartridge preferences. If I had asked for it, then your post would have helped me. But for right now, I am researching the 338 whisper. Thank you
