Dave, I always figured the difference with long barrelled rifles, shooting the 300SMK, there would be around 125fps difference for the same pressures.

Is that about right? If not, how much is a BFD in your opinion?

AJ Peacock, how much is a BFD in your opinion?

tough question, i would guess as it relates to these 2 calibers, about 100 fps. my point was, a 100 fps doesn't really make much difference when trying to kill at long range. if the edge would be good to say 1500, the rum would only be 100 yards behind it at the most.

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!

Re: .338 EDGE Brass?

So the real question would be, how significant would 1 unit BFD be if you were in the middle of BFE?
