I plan on picking up a 338wm for my new elk gun. I'll be going off the shelf though, nothing custom. There's a reason 338 win mag is called the elk caliber... from wikipedia: "Due to its popularity with elk hunters and its effectiveness as an elk cartridge it is known as the “King of the Elk Cartridges”"

.338 Win Mag is a great short to mid-range elk round. A .340 Weatherby is better at those ranges & further. The Ultra & Lapua mags take heavy guns but can handle even more range but are brutal in light rifles.

Save your money. Just buy a Savage 116 with accu trigger, and accu stock. I love mine. It's my Alaska rifle. I mounted a Huskemaw on it and love it.
