Not that I have seen. My edge killed a whitetail at 930 yards and I have shot rocks to 1740 yards. It is very accurate with both the bergers and smk's.

Re: 300 gr bullets for a 338 rum's magizine

I am using the 300 gr berger, seated to magazine length out of my 338 rum and it shoots lights out. I tried to seat it deeper, but my redding seating die is bottomed out and I get get it seated any deeper to see if it would change at all. I would like to be be able to seat it .020 deeper, but I have to figure out how first. Sounds like a topic for a new thread.

I hunt where there are grizzlies, having a bullet hang up in the magazine because it is too close doesn't give me the warm fuzzies if I have to take multiple defensive shots without warning.

I do not see the benefit in a 300 gr bullet if it takes your powder capasity away to the point youcan't push it! This is my reasoning for the longer box
