What caliber if not 338 Lapua?

I have a 338 Lapua, and a 308 Winchester long range gun. I am looking for another long range gun, but not sure which caliber to go with. Any ideas? I don't wany any weird odd ball calibers. I am thinking a 7mm or 300 win mag or ultra mag...please give me some ideas. thanks

    Take the barrel off that 460 you want to sell and send it to Krieger. Tell them to duplicate the contour in a 30 caliber 9.5" twist. Then chamber it for a 300 Norma Magnum and shoot 230 gr bullets.

    You should consider both the 7LRM or 7Dakota and how about the new 338 Blaser?

    Go with standard 7 RM or 300 win mag if you dont want oddball and decent barrel life.

    sounds like you need a 7mm.
