Re: My New Gun 30-378

That's a mighty expensive round to reload for to be shooting at ground hogs and tweety birds!

Of course who am I to talk....I've been known to shoot 'yotes with my 338-378....

    Thehardway.. I want to make sure I make clean quick kills..lol! Yes it is expensive. Thats why I just got a browning 300wsm xbolt. Great round! How do you like that 338-378 I was debating on having my gun chambered to that instead. I just found more options with the 30 cal. I still want a 338, but I was think that338 norma everone talking about on hear.

    I just bought a 300wsm too, lol.

    Personally, I love the 338-378. It is an out of the box Accumark, and after some trial and error with reloads, it will shoot a ragged hole with 225 gr Barnes TSXs. I haven't missed any game with it yet from coyotes to elk.

    True about the options with the 30 cal. One of these days I will buy a 30-378 just to have a matched set.
    338 Edge and 338 Lapua are also some other options to consider....
