Thats a relative term for any 338 because barrel life is a finite thing, whereas a with a 308, barrel life is usually more than one generation..

Simply stated, about 2000 down the tube and it's shot.

Just a conversation piece for me. It's absurdly expensive to shoot, even handloading and getting more expensive all the time.

I'll stick with my 308 for hunting.
No offense Sir but I have able to shoot the savage 338 lap fairly cheap.

42 cents - 300 grain SMK from Sierra bullet outlet
if you have a brother that lives there
26 cents - 93 grains RL 33, 8 pound keg
4 cents - primer
6 cents - brass.
if you find once fired Lapua brass for $1.50 and reload it 25 times.
I have gotten over 15 on lapua brass easy so that would be 10 cents.

Total is around 78 cents. Cheaper for me to reload my 338 than it is to buy a box of 7 mag at the local gas station.
