It has a more powder capacity, which means it "inherantly" has the ability to outperform the UM....

But on paper, the 340 Weatherby mag is faster than both, but I think most of us here know why.....a bit of freebore perhaps?

On Nosler site the 338 RUM out runs both with thier factory ammo and reloading data
if you are going past reloading data suggestions then the brass probably does let the 338LM catch up or pass
