    Have shot a friends Sendero SF in 338 RUM on several occasions. Doesn't have the quick sharp recoil that smaller caliber RUMs have. Very accurate, I think Remmy designers got it right. Should work on anything you want to hunt.

    Re: Tell me about the 338 Ultra Mag/ please

    I was considering a big cannon some time back but I was thinking about a 33 based on the 378 Wby case , maybe regular shoulder minimum body taper and a 35 deg shoulder , I'm not to sure but I beleive that this case would have a little more capacity than the other guys listed.

    Any oppinions ??

    There are several 33's based on the 378/460wby-case.
    338-378wby
    338 Kahn.
    338 Excalibur.
    And there sure are more.

    Oooops!! [img]images/icons/rolleyes.gif[/img]
    Sorry, I was too quick. The 338 Excalibur is based on the 300 Pegasus, of course! [img]images/icons/rolleyes.gif[/img] [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]
    What i really was thinking of is the 338 A-Square, but that has a rather long troath.
