Thats about right. But on the other side of the coin, if you were buying a custom barrel and having it chambered, why would you pick the RUM over the Edge? Unless you didn't reload or were heading to Africa (where you need the barrel and brass to be marked the same)?
The 338 RUM is only 1 BFD unit behind the EDGE. But with FAR less powder, the 338 Win Mag is only 2 BFD units behind the RUM
, maybe we are just bitten by the 'more power' bug?? Of course, my 'get serious' 338 is an AM!
