Where is all the 330 Dakota info at?

I have been searching the fourm for 2 hours and using google. I just cant find the info Im looking for. Is anyone running a 338 Dakota? What can you tell me about it in regard to speed, barrel length and bullets used etc Anything you might know will be more than I do at this point.

I ask beacuse Im considering it or the 338RUM for my new barrel.

Jon

I think an easier way to go for that kind of performance would be the 300 Jarrett.
Use 8mm Remington brass, and the dies are availible.

Jon,

The 330 Dakota and 338 RUM are base off the same parent case, 404 Jeffry, as well as the WSM's. If you're looking for LR performance , I think the 338 Ultra would be the way to go and the brass is a whole lot cheaper. Just off the top of head, the case capasity of the 338 RUM is about 15% more. If you want to know the real skinny on the 330 Dakota, call Dakota Arms and talk to Walt, if he's still there. They also have velocities listed for their various cartridges on their web site.
