Re: What is a .338 edge?

I was shooting one day and a guy came up to me with his target and asked me what he thought about the bullets tearing on inch holes in his target! We could not figure out why the bullets were going in length wise until I realized he was shooting 7mm RUM bullets in his 300 RUM gun...his brother bought him the wrong bullets for his new gun.
Needless to say he was very upset with his brother...
I then heard that there were some lawsuits on Remington when they came out with the 300 RUM. People were shooting 7mm RUM bullets through their 300 RUM by accident. I am sure one of the reasons for the shorter OAL of the 338 RUM was to prevent the use of 300 RUM bullets to chamber in the 338 RUM...
That was a very interesting day at the range I can tell you that!!

7MM Rum being shot in a 300 Rum is only going to open the neck to30 cal and be very inaccurate no other damage that I can see.......
range it,check the wind, dial in correction, aim and only one shot
