The 338 RUM will do anything the 338-300 RUM will do in a much better package.

the RUM has less case capacity and less velocity than the EDGE. I think that is why it is called " THE EDGE"

The 338 Norma has a 5% reduction in case capacity compared to the 338 Lapua but velocities are VERY close. And it is in a shorter package. So kinda like 338 RUM and 338 Norma vs 338 Lapua and 338 EDGE.

Is it 338-300 RUM or 300-338 RUM??? I know it is more confusing to call it " The EDGE" but since it has a real measurable "EDGE" that is easier for us to remember.

the 338 Norma has very similar performance to the 338 Rum and the 338 EDGE and Lapua are basically ballistic twins.
