Re: Rebarrel hunting rifle.

And the 338 win mag is faster than the 7mm stw with bullets of equal weight by 200 fps and that means the stw has 3700 ft pounds of energy at the muzzle, while the 338 WM has 4100. On paper the 338 win mag seems to be better in almost all aspects. (recoil not being on of them, but its okay im very tolerant to recoil, i can shoot my 300 wm 100 times in a row without my shoulder bothering me.) I can shoot 300 grain matchkings with the 338 win mag and have a very high bc, and the best i can get with a 7mm stw is 180 grains.

Re: Rebarrel hunting rifle.

Ive Kind of settled on the 338 win mag. It just seems better. Maybe next time if i dont like the 338 win mag ill get an stw. But i think ill like the 338 win mag... alot.

Re: Rebarrel hunting rifle.

For what you are using the rifle for, I don't know why you are changing calibers. The 7 will do eveything you want it to without the extra recoil.

OKay i have my howa 1500 in 300 win mag for anything out to 400 yards using holdover. Then i have my 7mm rem mag and thats the stay in the truck gun. Ill use it for shots from 400 yards on out to 800 yards. my 7 will burn out here in the next 6 months. I don't want to go with another 7mm rem mag when i could move up a couple notches without costing me much extra money. Any extra money really. So i figured a 338 win mag has better ballistics, and has more punch, all while in a .338 diameter bullet that will expand to equal much more than a 7mm bullet could.

And recoil isnt an issue for me. I put a muzzle break on every gun i own. I dont need one for my 7mm mag, but it looks cool ;)
