Sako 85M Grey Wolf in .338 Federal

I just got a great deal on the Sako GreyWolf in .338 Federal. Does anyone on this board have any experience with the .338 federal cartridge?

I already am familiar with Sako's reputation and quality. I'm curious as to the cartridge's performance and limitations. I know it is not a .338 Lapua, so don't tell me it's not as good; I know. But it was only $725 NEW!
TIA

Using the Federal factory 200gr Fusion ammo my buddy's Kimber in 338 Federal will put every round in 1" at 100 yards.

Not bad for a factory rifle shooting factory ammo. Should be rough on northern Adirondack deer this fall.

I have know practical experience with the round only what I have ready but it sounds like a great black bear round to me in a great rifle at a super price.

I would like to know how it shoots in comparison to VH buddys Kimber?
