I am going on my first elk hunt in Nov. I have a .300WSM, brass, dies and 168 gr Berger bullets. All I have to do is buy a set of rings to mount my Huskmaw on the gun...a Ruger 77 Mark II.
But...I have a friend that will sell me a Ruger 77 in .338 Win with a scope (all for $500) that has been sitting in his safe for 12 years. I would have to get brass/bullets/dies and scope rings.
Will the 300 WSM
work just fine on elk or should I jump on the .338?
Will I gain that much more by getting the .338??
