    Not the classifieds, the long range rifles tab, which is not part of the forums. Broz makes good points about the 338 lapua. If I go bigger than my 7 mag, it will be the lapua... Or maybe I should say when I go bigger.

    Just read your post of calibers you're already shooting. Sounds like you NEED the .338 Lapua!

    Between the two the 338 lapua. Just read what Broz said again because it is dead on and I don't have to type any more.

    Yeah I agree with Broz. But on a side note,or atleast something else to think about, why not get the best of both worlds and go with a .338 Edge or .300 Allen Express? The former is a .300 RUM necked to .338 and the latter a .338 LM necked to .30 Allen Improved. ;) I plan on getting a .270 AX or .300 AX one day when the $$ is good. Mr. Kirby if you are reading this please dont retire for atleast another 5-10 years so I can experience the greatness of your work!

    Btw, Im not sure how up to date it is but wiki says that the current 5-shot BR record was set by a man with a .300 Hulk ~1.4in @ 1000.
    Also dont forget Craig Harrison with the longest confirmed kill to date(2707 yards) with a .338LM. Take that .50BMG shooters! LOL
    .338 Lapua Magnum - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


    But, if those are out of the question, .338LM all the way. As was said, you already have quite a few very capable .30 cal`s. The LM would top off your armory quite nicely, and give you confidence of being able to slam everything in the lower 48 easily, as well as everything in all of NA.
