So yesterday as I was lugging my 13ish pound rifle up to look at some elk with some of the shorter range guys and it dawned on me "this is stupid" and "what the heck am I doing". So last night I did some searching and it looks like a 338 WSM with a 200gr ish bullet would be a very capable timber/carry rifle. What do you guys think a guy could get out of a 338 WSM, I want to stay with a short action Savage, barrel length and contour not sure about, stock I was thinking the new LR stock from Stocky's Stocks. Ideally I would top it of with a Nightforce 2.5-10 but that ain't happening so that's up in the air. Any input would be good!
