Dead Beat, I think you made an excellent choice. Shawn, my appologies if you thought I was slighting you and your excellent work with that cartridge. I said in there all this standardization is great. There is no comparison on long range elk between the 300 ultra and necking it up to 338. The 338 version is light years beyond. I am confident we are on the same page. I wish you continued success with the cartridge. Like I said, me, sniper2 and several others that shot them out of my shop years ago know exactly what those babies will do. I am a private tinkerer and not a commercial gunsmith and have no interest to be. But I guarantee I know what shoots and what don't from many years of experience and that 338-300 ultra will flat out shoot.
