Re: F/N Action
The 338Edge or 338RUM should work fine in your FN Mauser action, but I am not familiar with the 338Canadian. Case head and case length (2.85 for Edge and 2.76 for RUM) are no problem. I have heard some speculation about the strength of these actions but the RUM operates at only about 2,000 PSI higher than the 375H&H, so if that slight increase in chamber pressure sends it over the limit it would have failed eventually anyway. I used one of these actions for a 264Win build and heard the same negative noise about that but never had a single problem with it, and the 264 operates in the same ballpark for pressure as the RUM's.
