Hey, go for it man. You can't go wrong with the Rum. If you ever want more power you can always go up later.

I am not an edge guy either i think that anything the edge can do a Lapua can do with better brass life.

Biggest fail of 2014 so far... http://www.longrangehunting.com/foru...ea-ftf-128972/

My guess on W3P .308 230 Grain Bullet: G1 .740-.755

Any of them will work fine, I like the mild 338's. The are fun to shoot and watch the energy on target. You also have the 338 Norma, gas and go with good brass and easy to load for. Great case design.

Don't wait long on me to argue.

I'm still mad at Lapua though for not standardizing the .300 Lapua. That WAS going to be my next caliber (about five or ten years back, whenever it was looking great in testing)... . Damn I'm getting old.

Thanks for the input, still not really decided yet. But have made the choice between the two RUM's. Still swaying towards the 338RUM though , just like the bullet weights better for the critters up here in Alaska. The ballastics are pretty impressive too.

You can't go wrong with either of the Rum's. If I were living in your neck of the woods the .338 Rum would be my go to caliber as well.

With big bears and Moose that extra energy is most certainly not wasted. With all the wind you guys get up there the higher BC bullets are also going to make a big difference on the long shots as well.
