Actually, what I am chasing is .338 Lapua class ballistics. If this works, the numbers say I should be in the ballpark. I may also step up to the MAX designated 320g bullets. If they shoot, they should close the gap a bit. The .338 Lapua should still have a performance edge, but it would not be a large one.
My overall thinking when I started this involved versatility. I wanted to see if it was possible to have a close up smasher and a long range hammer on the same platform in a carry weight rifle. Based on what I have learned so far, it appears to be possible. The jury is still out, though.
If the CE's prove out, I may also try the 350g SMK. It will not shoot as flat, but will allow me reasonable practice at half the cost of the CE's. That is, of course, if the SMK will stabilize from my rifle.
