Re: Texas Hunt

If you are talking about someone brand new to shooting, HELL NO don't start with a 338 Lapua. The recoil and muzzle blast will turn them off of shooting forever, and if it doesn't the flinch they will initially develop will take a LONG time to cure.

If you are talking about someone new to long range hunting/shooting, who has many years of experience in shooting (as is pretty much a pre-requisite to this sport anyway), the 338 Lapua would be a fine starting place for a long range rifle. Just realize the cost of ammuntion and brass is very expensive, since Lapua and Norma are the only manufacturers.

FWIW,

Jim

Re: Texas Hunt

338 lupua,
thanks for the info on the newbie with a 338. i happen to be the newbie although i'm a vet and into assault weapons. i'm farmiliar with ar15's, m16's, psg1, hk91, and such but totally unfarmiliar with hunting & long range target shooting.
with your insight, i just purchased a stainless 26" winchester 300 win mag repeater with a brake, maybe this will be more my speed,
thanks again jim,
morgan in dallas
